ADFIAP, represented by its Secretary General, Mr. Octavio B. Peralta, attended a networking activity sponsored by the European Union (EU) in Bangkok, Thailand on April 26-27, 2006.

The Asia Pro Eco Programme Networking Meeting brought together European Commission representatives from its headquarters in Brussels, some of its country delegations in the region, and 77 Asia Pro Eco beneficiaries to share experience on the way projects under the Programme are being managed and implemented to achieve their objectives. The other purpose of the networking event was to exchange ideas and recommendations on how to improve the impact and sustainability of Asia Pro Eco projects, and to gather recommendations for the strategic orientation of the Programme. The 2006 meeting was the first such meeting for Asia Pro Eco, now that the Programme has reached the stage where there is a critical mass of project experience dating back up to three years.

The agenda of the meeting included presentations, plenary sessions and parallel workshops covering three main areas of the Asia Pro Eco Programme – water, waste and energy – covered by three resource persons who have all been involved in the Programme. This afforded facilitation of discussions and the exchange of information and lessons learnt among beneficiaries, as well as stimulated the dialogue on issues relevant to the region and the Asia Pro Eco Programme.

Mr. Peralta showcased and briefly discussed with delegates during the event, ADFIAP’s Asia Pro Eco Programme grant project on Environmental Governance Standards (EGS) for member-development banks
