During 1-2 June, SERVIR-Mekong personnel led a kick-off workshop for seven grantee organizations selected under the SERVIR-Mekong Grants Program at the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center in Bangkok, Thailand. The purpose of the event was to define roles and responsibilities, outline grant activities, and provide opportunities for the grantees to interact in person with SERVIR-Mekong staff.

The grantees were selected through a rigorous two-stage application process under two solicitations: one focused on research activities within the four SERVIR service areas (land cover/land use & ecosystems, water resources & disasters, food security, and weather & climate), and the other focused on exploring the intersection of gender and geospatial technology in relation to improving environmental management and resilience to climate change in the Mekong Region. Applications were solicited from organizations in Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
