The World Bank East Asia and Pacific Region, the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN), Foundation for Riverfront Improvement and Restoration and Tokyo Development Learning Center, are hosting the Global 4 Dimensions Water Cycle Management Seminar- connecting with China, Indonesia, Madagascar, Vietnam, Philippines, Laos and Japan via videoconferencing system.
Global 4 Dimensions Water Cycle Management is a system that simulate past, present and future water cycle systems and visualizes the result with easy-to-understand graphics. It provides county based information on water that helps policy makers when drawing up and executing strategic action plans. This system is the world’s latest cutting-edge water cycle and water resource management technology and was originated in Japan. Even countries with insufficient funds and access to basic water cycle data information can visualize their nationwide water circulation system by using satellite systems at low cost. It is expected to be the powerful tool in policy making of water cycle and water resource management.
Mr.Drew Stewart, World Bank Institute Multimedia Center Interactive Television Producer, conducted a Videoconferencing Seminar titled“Working in Front of the Camera: How to Moderate and Present in Formal Videoconference” on November 16, 2006. Connecting to JICA offices in Tokyo and Osaka from the TDLC studio, Mr.Stewart gave advice to moderators and presenters on conducting a more effective session, finishing with a mock videoconference.
