Bangkok, Thailand 23 to 24 March 2017

This two-day workshop was the first in a series of three events that will feed into the 5th GMS Environment Ministers’ Meeting, scheduled for early 2018.

The workshop aimed to take stock of the environmental state and trends in the GMS and initiate a process to identify and prioritize environmental projects for the subregion, including those for the next phase of the Core Environment Program.

More than 70 participants attended including government officials from agriculture, energy, environment, planning and investment, and transport ministries. Key regional development partners and ADB representatives were also there.
