WOCAN assisted in organizing the Embassy of Sweden’s annual workshop for regional development partner organizations: CO-CREATION FOR TRANSFORMATION– Effective Delivery on SDGs through Enhanced Cross-Sectorial Interaction on March 21-22 in Bangkok. 

The interactive workshop has already resulted in many new relations between the participants that hopefully will benefit from each other’s expertise to deliver better on sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific.  140 participants worked together on the topics: marine litter, responsible investments, sustainable value chains, decent work, disaster preparedness, and conflict prevention in natural resource governance. Anne-Charlotte Malm, Head of Development Cooperation Section concluded:                              

“We have really co-created during this workshop and I believe that we have taken many steps towards being able to contribute to a sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific and towards a future where the environment and human rights are protected and respected.”
