November 2019

Dr. Tun Lwin (1948-2019), RIMES’ Founding Architect

I recall fond memories of Dr. Tun Lwin, former Director-General, Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH), Myanmar, and Chair of the Regional Steering Committee of the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia Multi-Hazard Early Warning System, the institutional mechanism through which RIMES was created. Dr. Tun Lwin passed away on 4 November 2019, at the age of 71.
