Web Alert: ReCAAP launches new website and mobile app. Publishes Q1 report
20 April 2018
ReCAAP has published its report for the first quarter of 2018. The overall situation of piracy and armed robbery against ships during January - March 2018 in Asia has improved compared to the same period in 2017. There was a 48% decrease in the number of incidents. This was due to the decrease in incidents at ports and anchorages in Bangladesh and Philippines. There was also no actual incident of abduction of crew in the Sulu-Celebes Sea and no hijacking of ships for theft of oil cargo during January-March 2018. The report can be found here.
ReCAAP has also launched a new website and mobile app. The website features a more contemporary interface with streamlined, more intuitive navigation.
The new mobile app, renamed “ReCAAP”, is linked to the ReCAAP ISC website to enhance accessibility and utilization. The ReCAAP app contains three primary modules, i.e. Directory (of ReCAAP Focal Points/Contact Point), Publication and Reporting. Improvements users will see include more efficient retrieval of the latest publications and reports, and a more user-friendly interface especially in manoeuvring from one module to another. Leveraging on GPS-aided capability, the ReCAAP mobile app also includes new features for the Reporting Module. More details are available here.
