“Nothing can keep us apart in ASEAN”
“Preparation and Imagination leads us to resilience”
“Planning keeps us ahead of uncertainties”
–quotes from the ASEAN-CRN Champions
In times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ASEAN Climate Resilience Network (ASEAN-CRN) partners cannot come together as usual to exchange knowledge and ideas on climate-resilient and climate friendly policies, practices and support initiatives in the land use sectors. However, the network and its members continue to uphold the spirit of cooperation and started a series of online events, some as virtual meetings among network members and some as webinars to promote knowledge exchange with external stakeholders.
