Held in Myanmar, the purpose of the first course was to improve the effectiveness of applying IWRM for sustainable management of water resources. Forty participants attended, including 10 facilitators and organizers. One result is greater awareness of the need to introduce new institutional arrangements for water resources management. The second training was held in Vietnam on Conflict Resolution and Negotiation Skills For IWRM.
