The Professional Development of Water Governance and Regional Development Practitioners in the Mekong Basin Program

hosted by Mekong Sub-region Social Research Centre (MSSRC), Faculty of Liberal Arts, Ubon Ratchathani University, Thailand. The project is proceeded and funded under the supervision of CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) and Australian Aids which starts from January 2015 to December 2017

This project will strengthen and expand relevant capacities of a Mekong-focused cohort of critical and engaged young scholars and practitioners of water governance and regional development, and link these to researchers in other Greater Mekong region basins, through a multi-country/ multi-basin collaborative fellowships program, teaching/training curriculum on water governance and effective communication. The project will foster collaboration among regional networks and organizations that have common interest and experience on the programs on professional development such as the M-POWER and SUMERNET.
