Cooperation in ASEAN reinforced

Posted: 2010-11-30

In 2010 the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and GWP Southeast Asia held their first joint workshop, Risks and Impacts from Extreme Events of Floods in ASEAN Countries, setting a clear precedent for future cooperation.

GWP Southeast Asia was asked to partner in arranging the workshop because of the key role it played in setting up the ASEAN Working Group on Water Resources Management (AWGWRM) which put water firmly on the ASEAN agenda. At the workshop it was agreed to set up a help desk with the support of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the International Centre for Water Hazard (ICHARM). Strengthening links with AWGWRM opens channels for GWP Southeast Asia to influence government water policies in the region.
