Recommendations

It is recommended that after several years of implementation of the ASEAN Strategic Plan of Action on Water Resources Management, it is already time to review and evaluate if the objectives are met. In this regard, as lead of the Knowledge Sharing and Exchange, we are requesting external support to assist us in the review and evaluation of the activity and recommend actions to achieve the objectives set in the plan.
