Aot [62期生（2019年秋）] [ラオス]
My name is Khamla INSOUNANH, I have worked for Provincial Office of Natural Resources and Environment (PONRE) of Xayaboury province, Lao PDR as Technical officer. My major is Watershed Management and Land Use Planning at University of Laos. Before working with local government I used to be part of mega project as Xayaboury Hydropower Project which it is the first lower Mekong dam and I was positioned as Environmental Inspector. First of all, I would thanks to IATSS Forum for providing me an opportunity to be a part of program.
As we have known that our world has been facing several issues as war, human trafficking, financial crisis, climate change which these global challenges have impacted widely to socioeconomic development and environment. So, new generation or young people is the key to deal with these global issues by taking this opportunity to strengthen professional network, exchange mutually lesion learnt and experiences of each countries in region.
In addition, I highly hope that IATSS Forum will be an area of raising tie the relationship in context of cooperation between ASEAN-Japan and make mutually understanding on culture, professional experiences, and etc.
Moreover, myself I will take this valuable opportunity to learn and experience new things particularly in the field of environmental protection, disaster management and resilience and other skills. Therefore, I extremely confident that all knowledge from program will bring back and apply into my career for making better change in my community.
I am looking forward to meet all of my new friends in the forum
