Description:
KANZU Research, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) in collaboration with Construction Research of Institute Malaysia (CREAM), Construction Industry Development Board of Malaysia (CIDB) and Futurise Sdn. Bhd has agreed to collaborate on a research project involving a project called A Collaborative Multi-Agency Platform for Building Resilient Communities (MOBILISE).

To realize this cooperation, a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was held on 05 August 2019 in Level 5, Tunku Tun Aminah Library, UTHM. UTHM was represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Prof. Ts. Dr. Ruzairi Abdul Rahim while CREAM was represented by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CREAM, Dato Ir. Rohaizi Mohd Jusoh and Futurise Sdn. Bhd was represented by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Mahadhir Aziz.

In 2017, the research group, KANZU Research: Resilient Built Environment received a research grant form Engineering Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), United Kingdom (UK). With this MOBILISE research grant, a researcher from CREAM has been sponsored by the University of Salford, UK to pursue a PhD. in the university in the field of Critical Infrastructure & Disaster Resilient for three years.

The collaboration agreement also stated that KANZU Research, UTHM donated RM 280,000 to CREAM while CREAM donated RM 60,000 to UTHM to cover the expenses of the research. Both of these donations will be used to sponsor a student selected by CREAM and UTHM to further their PhD. level studies. At the ceremony, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Prof. Ts Dr. Ruzairi Abdul Rahim stated that this sponsored researcher was able to create and devise an idea of an innovation that would make this MOBILISE project a success.

He added that the two-party collaboration would provide better results for the MOBILISE project, especially in developing an integrated digital infrastructure for various national disaster management agencies to reduce the impact of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) on Malaysian communities. At the same time, the UTHM-Futurise collaboration will also see a joint venture in promoting MOBILISE Malaysia nationwide.

Also presented at the event were Sr. Dr. Mohd Lizam Mohd Diah (Dean of the Faculty of Technology and Business Management), Associate Professor Dr. Nor Hazana Abdullah (Deputy Dean Research Development & Publication) and Sr. Dr. Noralfishah Sulaiman (Head Researcher of KANZU Research: Resilient Built Environment.

Place/Venue:

Participants:
Sr. Dr. Noralfishah Sulaiman (KANZU Research, UTHM), MOBILISE Team (UTHM), Dr. Zaidi Razak (General Manager of Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA)), YBhg. Prof. Ts. Dr. Wahid Razzaly (Vice-Chancellor of UTHM), Prof. Terrence Fernando (THINKlab, University of Salford, Manchester) and 40 Sarawak Disaster Management Agencies

Description:
Conference has been successfully organized on 22 August 2019. All the agencies participate actively and gave positive feedback on the conference. During the workshop and discussion, we have divided it into 3 sessions. First session is regarding the Multi-Agency Collaboration Model. The aims of carrying out this session is to gather input on understanding multi-agency collaboration models among the Sarawak Disaster Management Agencies (SDMA); to share the knowledge and experience regarding collaboration among multi-agency while dealing with stages in disaster management cycle; to understand interest, strategies, agency relationships and internal power relation of the SDMA and all the input will be fed into the academic journal papers. During this session, we asked the participants to answer an online survey using Google Form by using their electronic devices and all the responds have been recorded and submitted to us. So, we will try to analyze it and develop our own collaboration model that can fit the MOBILISE project.

The second and third sessions are the Brainstorming Session. All the participants are required to have a round-table discussion and each table provided with one paper to write down their opinions on the challenges on collaboration and best solutions in enhancing collaboration during disaster management in Sarawak.

From the discussion, we have found out that the most challenges part in disaster management are due to the silo thinking, lack of internal/external coordination, communication problems, lack of data/information sharing among agencies, disaster information are not disseminate properly during disasters and different time of respond among agencies during disaster. Besides, the MoU and MoA signing ceremony between UTHM, Sarawak Multimedia Authority and RS & GIS Consultancy Sdn Bhd during the MOBILISE Sarawak 4.0 conference has been carried out during the conference.

 

Activity:
Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM).
