The training workshop on ‘Robust Decision Support (RDS)’ was successfully conducted on April 8-9, 2021, at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Campus, Thailand via a virtual (hybrid) platform. The RDS training by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) was delivered to the team of the Strengthening Groundwater Governance in Rapidly Urbanizing Areas of the Lower Mekong Region (GIRA) project. The participants in the event were the project personnel and young researchers from Thailand, Lao PDR, Cambodia, and Vietnam who are involved in the project. Dr. Thanapon Piman and Uttam Ghimire from SEI conducted the training workshop with the main objective to build an understanding of the RDS concept, to demonstrate applications of RDS in water resources management, and to discuss how to use RDS in the GIRA project.
The GIRA project has been funded by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) under the SUMERNET 4 All Programme which is funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The study areas of the project are the Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR; Khon Kaen city, Thailand; Siem Reap city, Cambodia and Can Tho city, Vietnam.
WEM would like to thank the SEI team for their support in understanding and applying the RDS framework in the GIRA project.
