Sharing co-created knowledge from CKWEL project, 24th June 2022 (14:30 pm BKK)

This webinar highlights how knowledge co-creation approaches can allow for inclusion of community voices, particularly of women, in Myanmar (Inlay Lake) and Thailand (Isan)

SUMERNET Public Seminar on “Co-creating Knowledge to Enhance Women’s Leadership for Inclusive River Governance and Livelihood Resilience in the Mekong Region”

This webinar highlghts our research project that applies a knowledge co-creation approach to allow for community voices, particularly women’s voices, in Myanmar (Inlay Lake) and Thailand (Isan) can address key priorities increasing pressures on water due to the pandemic, climate change, and political disruption.

The co-created knowledge supports an understanding of how the roles and responsibilities of rural women within their communities and livelihoods have been impacted and, with respect to water governance, what the implications of such changes might be for women’s capacity to access riverine resources and assume leadership in water decision-making. The project attempted to be a bridge between local, traditional knowledge and scientific, empirical knowledge. In doing so the team developed a framework for understanding the river and support community voices, in particular those of women, to be more involved in knowledge creation and decision-making. This would result in improved outcomes for river governance at the local level.
The CKEWL project was executed by an all-women’s team, that included Karen Delfau from International Water Centre Alumni Network (IWCAN), Pichamon Yeophantong from University of New South Wales (Canberra) Australia / Thailand, Kanokwan Manorom from Mekong Sub-region Social Research Center (MSSRC), Ubon Ratchathani University, Thailand and Nang Shining from Mong Pan Youth Association (MPYA), Southern Shan State, Myanmar and Jureerat Saisud from Ubon Ratchathani University.
