CAPaBLE Phase 1 In Review
|Description||Having the capacity to conduct high quality research that provides underpinning scientific support for decision-makers and decision-making processes is vital for least-developed nations in the Asia-Pacific region and is recognised by the APN as crucial for improving the scientific and technical capabilities of these nations.
The APN is taking a strategic approach to capacity building and sustainable development through its capacity development programme, CAPaBLE, which was launched in April 2003.
CAPaBLE was registered as a Type II Partnership Initiative by the Ministry of the Environment Japan (MOEJ) at the World Summit for Sustainable Development (WSSD), held in Johannesburg in September 2002. CAPaBLE is addressing parts 107 to 114 of the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI).
For six years, the CAPaBLE programme has been working actively in the region and has now entered into its third 3-year phase of activities. The scope of the present brochure is to highlight the key outcomes of the programme in its first phase from April 2003 to March 2006.
