Sustainable Resource Management Community
|English | دری | پښتو|
The Sustainable Resource Management Community brings together professionals concerned with the effective management of Afghanistan's natural resources for economic, social and environmental benefits, in support of the goals of the Afghanistan National Development Strategy.
It is a United Nations knowledge facilitation service that significantly contributes to capacity enhancement for sustainable resource management in Afghanistan, by extending and expanding access to a wide range of pragmatic solutions.
The Community is your forum for networking with practitioners and acknowledged experts to learn, share and collaborate, increasing the effectiveness of your individual and collective efforts. It is an easy and quick way to tap into local and external empirical evidence and knowledge, in order to build knowledge for more effective policy and program design and implementation in the areas related to sustainable resource management.
Your knowledge and willingness to contribute to the Community's dialogue on Sustainable Resource Management for Afghanistan are the only qualifications for signing up.
How it works
Solution Exchange Afghanistan uses a mail-group that is moderated by a Facilitation Team based in the UNDP Country Office, Kabul. The Sustainable Resource Management Community, like all other Solution Exchange Communities around the world, is about collaboration with your peers using two methods:
Virtual services. Everyone in the community is a member of a mail group moderated by the Facilitation Team. When you face a challenge you e-mail a query to the community. Over the next 1-3 weeks members respond with experience, contacts, advice or other suggestions to help you out. Once the query closes the Facilitation Team synthesizes the responses, experiences and the resources recommended into a Consolidated Reply, and circulates it to Community members.
Face-to-face. Community members meet in annual forums and regional events to interact, learn from each other and make new connections. Members also collaborate on assignments, tapping into each other's knowledge, expertise and different perspectives.
The Community addresses the issues and concerns relating to the responsible utilization and protection of Afghanistan's land, forest, water, energy, mineral and biodiversity resources
