APN and its Role in
Capacity Building Xiaojun Deng
APN Secretariat What is An inter-governmental network of 22 member countries
Fosters global change research in the Asia-Pacific region
Increases developing country participation in global change research
Strengthens links between the science community and policy makers 1990 1996 2003 2010 17–18 April 1990 European Network for
Research In Global Change
(ENRICH) 1996:
1st Inter-Governmental Meeting (IGM)
1st Scientific Planning Group (SPG) Meeting

1st ARCP competitive funding process launched

1st Strategic Period (1999–2004)
Goals and Science Agenda CAPaBLE Programme Official Launched at the 8th IGM CAPaBLE stands for "Scientific Capacity Building/Enhancement for Sustainable Development in Developing Countries"

An initiative in response to Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI) for the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) 2012 Third Strategic Phase (2010-2015)
Goal 1: Supporting regional cooperation in global change research on issues particularly relevant to the region

Goal 2: Strengthening appropriate interactions among scientists and policy-makers, and providing scientific input to policy decision-making and scientific knowledge to the public

Goal 3: Improving the scientific and technical capabilities of nations in the region including the transfer of know-how and technology

Goal 4: Cooperating with other global change networks and organizations Goals Science Agenda Climate Change and Climate Variability

Ecosystems, Biodiversity, and Land Use

Changes in the Atmospheric, Terrestrial and Marine Domains

Resources Utilization and Pathways for Sustainable Development
Donor Countries: Japan, USA,
Republic of Korea, and New Zealand 22 Member `Countries* 40 ARCP/CAPaBLE Projects (FY 2012) 4 * Pacific Island Countries and Singapore are approved countries whose scientists are eligible to receive funding under APN awards.
