Wetland Alliance Building local capacity for
sustainable wetlands management
  • brings together strengths of four institutions
    in
  • education
  • training
  • conservation
  • development
  • research
  • focusing on wetlands in and around the Mekong
    region

17
Focusing on …
  • The importance of aquatic resources
  • Key element in poor peoples livelihoods, but
    relatively little is known
  • Can help local agencies to better collect and
    interpret basic information on these resources
  • Find better ways of linking local data to
    national, regional and global databases

18
Building …
  • A collaborative framework
  • build on existing programmes and projects
  • further extend collaboration
  • test and explore ways of working together

19
Building …
  • Wetlands Alliance
  • common platform for addressing local capacities
  • main efforts focus on provincial and district
    institutions
  • encourage national agencies to provide more
    support
  • better coordination of planning, management,
    administration and monitoring
  • promotes an agenda on aquatic resources
    management and conservation for poverty
    alleviation

ICT4D
  • ICT for Development (ICT4D)
  • Objective
  • The effective and appropriate use of ICT for
    development
  • Multidisciplinary
  • Infrastructure communications, open source
    software, databases
  • Applications knowledge management, e-learning,
    e-gov, e-health, e-commerce, all ICT components
    of development projects
  • Capacity Building information and knowledge
    sharing, education
  • Policy government strategies, digital divide

21
ICT4D
  • Infrastructure in Developing Countries
  • communications networks, open source software,
    GIS
  • E.g. Digital Ubiquitous Mobile Broadband OLSR
    (DUMBO)
  • Development Applications
  • e-government, disaster management,
    entrepreneurship
  • E.g. GIS for disasters, for bird flu tracking
  • Capacity Building
  • knowledge sharing, e-learning, training
  • E.g. technology transfer of commercializing
    freshwater aquaculture in NE Thailand (Wetlands
    Alliance), API advanced seminar on international
    environmental studies (UNU and other AP partners)
  • Policy
  • National government strategy on ICT
  • E.g. IT for rural planning in Thailand, poverty
    indicators for rural development in Cambodia
