Consultancy Opportunity with the AHA Centre: FULL STACK WEB DEVELOPER (2 positions)


Duration: 6 months


The AHA Centre – ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management is an inter-governmental organisation established by 10 ASEAN Member States: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam, to facilitate cooperation and coordination among ASEAN Member States (AMS) and with the United Nations and international organisations for disaster management and emergency response in the region.

The AHA Centre was established on 17 November 2011 during the 19th ASEAN Summit in Bali, Indonesia, through the signing of “the Agreement on the Establishment of the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre)” by ASEAN Foreign Ministers, witnessed by all ASEAN Heads of State/Government. The AHA Centre’s office also houses the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), which serves as the central location in monitoring disasters and coordinating ASEAN’s collective response to disasters.

The AHA Centre’s ICT infrastructure was first constructed through the AHA Centre ICT Phase I project, which was initiated in 2011. It was then enhanced in 2013 with the implementation of the ICT Phase II project, aimed to connect ten AMS and the AHA Centre through IT systems and solutions. As a result, disaster-related information from AMS can now be shared in a real-time manner, and resulted in the strengthened cooperation and coordination among AMS and the AHA Centre. The ICT Phase III project began in February 2016 to ensure availability of the system to AMS and continuous operations of the AHA Centre. The ICT Phase IV project started in September 2018 to enhance the ICT operational capacity of the AHA Centre to enable the AHA Centre to further enhance its disaster monitoring and analysis capability and support a well-informed decision-making process. The ICT projects have been implemented with generous funding support of Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF).

One of the main activities in the ICT Phase IV Project is AHA Centre ICT platforms enhancement. The AHA Centre has various platforms and tools to monitor, share, and update situations on hazards and disasters in the region, including the ASEAN Disaster Information Network (ADInet), Disaster Monitoring and Response System (DMRS), ASEAN Science-based Disaster Management Platform (ASDMP), and AHA Centre website. Data from those platforms should be seamlessly synchronised on a regular basis. Therefore, enhancement of those multiple platforms is needed.
