The Sector Network Natural Resources and Rural Development Asia (SNRD Asia) is financed through projects and programmes which GIZ is conducting on behalf of the German Government. It is governed by a Steering Group (consists of a Spokesperson, a Deputy Spokesperson, 3 Representatives from Germany, a Representative from National Staff and 6 Speakers from each Working Group). For each member country, one Country Focal Point is nominated and represents the interface between the Sector Network and his/her assigned country.
The Secretariat is based in Bangkok, Thailand, with local and international staff stationed across the region. To learn more, click through the below links:
