The ASEAN-CRN Knowledge Exchange and Partners Meeting event was held in Bangkok on 28 – 30 March 2023.
The three-day event seeks to build the capacities of the ASEAN-CRN focal points while providing a venue for discussion on potential collaborations among the various partners of ASEAN-CRN. This year, ASEAN-CRN will also revive its tradition of opening up discussions and matching support from development partners with needs from ASEAN Member States.
The first two days were dedicated to knowledge exchange on decarbonisation and other relevant topics, including a partnership forum. The discussion also identified finance and implementation options to take forward KJWA in the region in conjunction with the Southeast Asian GCF Readiness Grant.
The event is being organised with support from the FAO-Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (RAP) and GIZ under the “Promotion of Sustainable Agricultural Value Chains in ASEAN” (ASEAN AgriTrade) project with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) together with the Mekong Institute (MI). It is co-chaired by Thailand as Chair of ASEAN-CRN and by the Philippines as the incoming ATWGARD Chair.
