Thursday, May 14, 2009

The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) have entered into a contribution agreement on urban environmental management.This is in the form of Southeast Asia Urban Environmental Management Applications (SEA-UEMA) Project, which aims to improve the Urban Environmental Management (UEM) policies and good practices in the region. CIDA has allocated a total CAN$ 9.5 million over 5 years (2003-2008) for developing, managing and implementing this project by AIT.

The goal of the project is to contribute to the improvement of urban environmental conditions in Southeast Asia (SEA) region. It seeks to attain improved implementation and sharing of sound urban environmental management policies and practices in the three key urban environmental sub-sectors (water and sanitation, solid waste, and air pollution) in Southeast Asian region with poverty reduction and gender equality as the two crosscutting themes. For emphasizing both UEM education and its application, the project has adopted a two-prong funding approach.

  • UEM Graduate Education
  • UEM Applications and Networks

SEA-UEMA project invites all potential partners, individuals as well as organizations, to join and expand this AIT-CIDA partnership. The particular onus is on UEM graduates, academics, researchers, professionals and policy makers in the region to use the CIDA provided resources to improve urban environmental conditions, particularly for the poor men and women in the major cities of Southeast Asia.
