"To facilitate and coordinate the implementation of applied geoscience programmes in East and Southeast Asia in order to contribute to economic development and an improved quality of life within the region."

CCOP-VIETADAPT Workshop on Geoscience Supporting Risk Management, Water and Food Security


In conjunction with the 66th CCOP Steering Committee Meeting in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the workshop on "Geoscience supporting risk management, water and food security" was organized by CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK), VIETADAPT Project and the Ministry of Mines and Energy of Cambodia (MME) in conjunction with the 66th CCOP Steering Committee Meeting in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It gathered together 27 experts from Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, China and Finland.  The main aim of the workshop was to identify possibilities of geosciences to support East and Southeast Asian societies in safeguarding water and food resources.

This full-day Workshop focused on exchange of methodologies and technologies for further water management and sustainable development in the CCOP area. Eight ppresentations were under three topics: 1) Geoscience and food security – examples and further ideas; 2) Vulnerability analyses for water supply; 3) Climate change adaptation for water resource management. It presented an overview how to enhance the geoscientific applications in food security matters. Several applications on sustainable water resource management from Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand were introduced. Methodologies and tools for assessing water resources vulnerability in changing climatic and socio-economic conditions were shown. The presentations triggered constructive, fruitful and extremely active discussions that were acknowledged by the workshop participants. The overall feedback for the workshop was very positive and sharing experience from real case studies was appreciated. Groundwater remediation techniques and modeling of climate change impacts to water resources were highlighted to be of great interest for the topics of the next workshop related to water management.
