Asean Water Platform 2021
WATER AND ITS MANY ISSUES.
METHODS AND CROSS-CUTTING ANALYSIS (WP4, 3/3)
22nd February – 6th March 2021
In Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam
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.
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.
The training will gather more than 100 participants from different countries and backgrounds. AWP is the only training within Wanasea project that is open to participants from outside the consortium, mainly from Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, thanks to co-funding sources from AUF, IRD, AFD and University of Nantes.
The AWP was initially planned to be held in Chiang Mai University in July 2020 and therefore, the project team had worked together in February 2020 in Chiang Mai discussing logistic and academic issues. Details are available in the Meeting Minutes below (available for download). However, due to the Covid 19 restrictions, it will be organised in parallel in three member countries: Cambodia (Phnom Penh), Thailand (Chiang Mai) and Vietnam (Can Tho) from 22nd Feb – 6th Mar 2021.
The general programme (updating) of this unique AWP, workshop programmes of AWP Chiang Mai and AWP Can Tho as well as related application forms are available for download below (Materials for download).
This year, participants will also have a chance to attend the Innovative Research Competition. The Grant award for the winner of each country is 1.000 EUR. The Term of Reference and Application of this competition is available for download too.
