12th Meeting of the AWGWRM

Vietnam, 25– 26 July 2012


Project Title: Information Sharing and Exchange on Good Policies and Practices

Objective : Creation of an established ASEAN means of sharing experiences, initially in the field of water supply, demand and allocation management, and development of an accessible ASEAN resource document centre on good practices and policies.

Lead Country: Philippines


Chronology of Events:

  • 2009- The ASEAN Member States agreed to use the existing mechanism, such as the KnowledgeHubs (, a network of the Asia Pacific Knowledge Forum (APWF) which was launched during the Singapore International Water Week on June 2008.
  • Meeting of AWGWRM (2010)- The Philippines was requested to share a summary of available information to the AMS.

Chronology of Events:

  • The Philippines submitted the summary of available information on the APWF Knowledge Hubs to the ASEAN Secretariat for dissemination to the ASEAN Member States.
  • 11th Meeting of AWGWRM (2011) – A summary of available Knowledge Hubs was presented for reference.
  • Confirmed Water Knowledge Hubs- 17
  • Candidate Water Hubs – 4

  • Candidate hubs are presently being considered for the following topics:
  • Coastal Zone Management (Candidate hub to be identified.)
  • Water and Energy (Candidate hub to be identified.)
  • Watershed Management (Candidate hub to be identified.)
  • Water Supply for Rural Areas and Small Towns (Candidate hub to be identified.)

As of December 2010, the 17 confirmed water knowledge hubs are available and same candidate water hubs.


For the Philippines, we may like to share that we have not fully utilized the available knowledge hubs by just accessing the website. We may also pose this question to other AMS in terms of full benefits.




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.


Thank You
