Sweden’s international development agency, Sida, hosted on 10-12 November national programme officers, programme managers, policy advisors and policy specialists working with Environment and Climate Change issues, at the Embassies and Sida Head Quarters, to Bangkok to participate in a Global Network Meeting.
The purpose of the meeting was to have a stocktake of where Sida is at regarding Environment and Climate Change issues, to share experiences and information, and to discuss and strategize how Environment and Climate Change issues can be further strengthened in Sida’s future work.
The network meeting was inaugurated with welcoming remarks by the Ambassador, Klas Molin, and the head of the Development Cooperation section, Anne-Charlotte Malm, and continued with interesting sessions of discussions and sharing of ongoing work.
During the second day all participants went on a field visit to Klongkhone Mangrove Conservation Centre. As part of the learning from partners, Eric-Kemp Benedict, Asia Centre Director of Stockholm Environment Institute, was invited to present some of their work. The network meeting closed on Wednesday by a summing up on the past days.
Some of the expected results of the network meeting is that the participants will have a common platform of understanding, better knowledge and network contacts for operationalization and improved results regarding Environment and Climate Change.
