Former ISET-International Bangkok Team Creates Independent Organization

Establishing a Regional Network Hub to Promote Research and Learning on Urban Climate Resilience and Transformation

We are pleased to announce that ISET-International’s Bangkok team is establishing an independent urban climate resilience network hub. The new hub will be established as a Thai-based “Center of Excellence” for engaged research with regional and international partners.

The network hub will be the host for the IDRC/SSHRC Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia Partnership (UCRSEA), focusing its efforts on the Mekong countries of Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. Dr Pakamas Thinphanga is the Co-Director of UCRSEA. The hub will also provide a platform to deepen and expand the research and learning work of the ACCCRN network.

To allow for this transition, the ISET-International Bangkok office formally ceased operations on November 25, 2015. The role of regional hub, formerly performed by the ISET-International Bangkok office has now shifted to our office in Hanoi.

We wish our former Bangkok team well in their new endeavor.
