Network resources pooled to build capacity in Myanmar

Posted: 2010-04-01

GWP Myanmar and GWP Southeast Asia organised a five-day regional training-of-trainers course on river basin organisations in Yangon, Myanmar, in March. In order to meet the considerable diversity of participant needs the course was structured around short presentations and sessions for sharing experiences.

To make the workshop happen, the Irrigation Department, Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation of the Government of Union of Myanmar and the Myanmar Water Partnership drew on a network of trainers from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Cap-Net, AguaJaring (Southeast Asia Capacity Building Network for IWRM), United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), UNEPDHI Centre for Water and Environment, Hydro Master and GWP Southeast Asia. Their success in arranging the workshop showed that significant initiatives to share knowledge can be launched by drawing on expertise from around the network.
