SUMERNET launches redesigned website to provide a fresh visual look and direction

After almost 14 years, we decided to give the website a much-needed makeover. The new design is aimed to provide a clean, colourful and elegant interface that is easy to use. The aim is to highlight our scientific research and policy engagement work and provide a wide variety of easily accessible information in different formats.

  • We take advantage of new digital tech and functionalities​
  • It allows more user-friendly and easier access, multiple languages, integrated social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter)​
  • Enables enhanced ownership of the programme: easier writing and sharing of blogs, photostories, films and other digital content ​among our partners
  • Easier compiling and sharing of announcements including grant calls and newsletters  ​

We’ve introduced a range of written and multimedia content (“stories” and “videos”) that we hope will enhance the look and feel of the website. As we expand our collaborations in the region, we will also be featuring profiles of new partners and activities. 

The new design gives an improved menu functionality that can help direct you to the information most relevant to you whether it be about stories, people, projects or events. It is also fully responsive with mobile devices, making it easy to navigate on a wide range of web browsers and portable devices.

At present the website is in English language the redesign is also intended to provide multilingual capacity in the near future to provide information in all the Mekong languages and make the SUMERNET website accessible to a wider readership in the region.

You can also sign-up to our SUMERNET newsletter from the website so that we can reach you directly with news about our recent and interesting research.

We will continue to communicate regularly through our stories and provide new articles as well as continue adding short videos.

We hope you like the new design and we look forward to receiving any comments and feedback you may have.
