The SUMERNET Annual Meeting 2016 will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of SUMERNET (2005 – 2015). The meeting will bring together research partners, research mentors, boundary partners, members of SUMERNET Steering Committee (SSC), policy actors and experts, donors and media, to share their knowledge and experience on sustainable development issues in the Mekong Region.
The Annual Meeting 2016 will take on the special theme of “A decade of SUMERNET: Realising the vision of sustainable development in the Mekong Region”.
The highlight of the conference is the session on "Stories of Change from the Mekong" that looks at the impacts and changes that SUMERNET has contributed to over the past 10 years of its establishment.
Prior to the event, the SUMERNET Secretariat has launched a regional network-wide call for stories of changes. The stories of changes will be presented at a special “impact panel” during the SUMERNET 10th Anniversary Conference. The SUMERNET partners along with other networks such as the Economy and Environment Program for Southeast Asia (EEPSEA), the Lower Mekong Public Policy Initiative (LMPPI), SUSTAIN-EU-ASEAN, and others as well as policymakers and the media will be attending the conference and taking part in different panels.
We will provide updates soon on the SUMERNET Annual Meeting 2016 and 10th Anniversary Conference programme.
