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. Agency for International Development (USAID) leads the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and partners with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide quality case management and prevention of malaria, strengthen surveillance, monitor control efforts and conduct operational research. USAID’s Control and Prevention of Malaria project in Burma, Cambodia and Thailand provides training for local community workers and health staff to effectively diagnose, treat and follow up on patients. The five-year program focuses on curbing multi-drug resistant malaria and improving access to early diagnosis and treatment for those who are most at risk for the disease, particularly migrant workers and other vulnerable populations.

Thank you all for coming together with us to have this very important discussion. And allow me to recognize the presence of Undersecretary Gil Beltran from the Department of Finance in the Philippines, with thanks  for taking time out of your very busy schedule to attend this important event. Of course I would also like to thank Stephen O’Connell, USAID’s Chief Economist who is joining us from Washington DC, and so many other distinguished guests.
