National University of Management (NUM)
WATER AND ITS MANY ISSUES.
METHODS AND CROSS-CUTTING ANALYSIS (WP4, 2/3)
Phnom Penh, July 05th-13th
The first goal of the Annual ASEAN Water Platform (AWP) is to build capacity in research into water natural resource management (WNRM) within the partner countries’ institutions, by means of gathering researchers from different backgrounds for multidisciplinary methodological approaches related to the analysis of WNRM sector.
The second objective is to disseminate knowledge on WNRM and enhance collaboration between the participants. The platform must be able to increase the research collaboration between participants and to set the basis future long-term partnership between the representatives of different institutions in EU and in ASEAN. Then, the institutions partners must be able to set up and run projects on a bigger international scale.
This year, NUM will hold a Summer School of two Erasmus+ Capacity-building projects coordinated by University of Nantes, named DOCKSIDE and WANASEA, with the participation of more than 100 Asian young researchers and Europeans visiting scholars. In addition, a number of places will be given to candidates outside WANASEA consortium, mainly from Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, thanks to co-fundings from AUF, IRD and University of Nantes.
In order to achieve those goals, AWP relies on the following working principles:
- Transfer of methodological tools;
- Multidisciplinary approaches (social sciences, sciences);
- Good balance between theories and practical work;
- Interactivity among participants;
- Disseminate knowledge;
- Build a collaborative network (academic and non-academic);
- Intercultural exchanges.
