USAID/RDMA Mission Director Beth Paige addresses questions at the SERVIR-Mekong media event in Bangkok.
September 2, 2015

Thank you for joining us at the launch of SERVIR-Mekong, the third hub in the Global SERVIR network.

We at USAID are proud to partner with NASA on SERVIR because we – and the development community more broadly – are just scratching the surface of how geospatial information can be applied to address a wide range of development challenges.

As SERVIR has already been doing in Eastern and Southern Africa and across the Hindu-kush Himalaya region, SERVIR-Mekong will help governments and other key decision-makers in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam take advantage of NASA’s publicly available satellite imagery and geospatial analyses.

These tools help make more informed decisions on critical issues that impact people across the region, such as water management, land use planning, disaster risk reduction, infrastructure development and natural resources management. And informed decisions about issues such as these can save lives, preserve livelihoods and bring about greater resiliency in communities. That’s what drives all of us to embrace this partnership.

The U.S. Government, in partnership with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), launched the inaugural ASEAN-U.S. Science and Technology (S&T) Fellowship in April 2014. Over the next several years, the Fellowship will place emerging science leaders into government ministries to strengthen evidence-based policy making. The Fellowship also empowers young leaders to engage in policies that drive national priorities and impact the lives of citizens in ASEAN.

With the evergrowing expansion of mobile networks and the increasing affordability of mobile devices, a majority of farmers can now receive market prices, farming techniques and other key agricultural information via short message service (SMS, also referred to as text messages). Less common, however, are smartphone applications for farmers. With this in mind, 8villages developed The Farmer smartphone application to deliver richer content and improve the user experience for farmers receiving agricultural information via mobile technology in Myanmar.

USAID will conduct teacher trainings at universities and vocational colleges to strengthen workforce readiness.
