To share the successes, challenges, and lessons learned and assess the activities that have been rolled out, Mekong Institute (MI) organized an “End of Project Evaluation and Dissemination Workshop on Sustainable and Smart Agricultural Supply Chain Development in Mekong Countries” on June 13, 2023. The online event brought together 41 participants from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam (CLMTV) as part of its end-of-project evaluation activity.
A total of fifty-nice (59) activities were implemented in the form of studies, workshops, trainings, and action plan implementations with technical support. The activities involved 2,230 direct and indirect stakeholders / beneficiaries from the Mekong countries. The project covered four inter-related components, namely: i. Sustainable and smart technology for agriculture production supply chain, ii. Energy efficiency in the agriculture supply chain, iii. Smart logistics management for the agriculture supply chain, and iv. Monitoring and Evaluation. The workshop served as a venue to compile the list of technologies introduced, document country-specific case-studies, and present a policy brief targeting CLMTV governments to encourage them to work towards the development of a sustainable and smart agricultural supply chain in the Mekong countries.
