DELGOSEA Management Team, represented by Project Director, Dr Peter Köppinger, Project Manager, Susanne Stephan, and five National Coordinators and Administrative Assistants from Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Thailand conducted a three-days meeting in Jakarta on January 25-27, 2011, to finalize Best Practice (BP) Transfer Concept development and subsequent replication activities with pilot cities.

The Transfer Concept outline and content list have been provided by DELGOSEA Coordination Office in Manila to all National Coordinators, who in turn will identify key expert(s), to document the BP replication process at pilot city from the start until the closing of the project in August 2012. The initial draft of the transfer concept is also agreed to be shared to local government stakeholders for their review and inputs during the National Conference – an activity planned at each country later in end of March to April 2011, to strengthen cooperation with the policy-making partners, academia, media and civil society.

The Transfer Concept will be presented in local language. The english summary of all Transfer Concepts from each country will also be prepared and uploaded on website after the implementation of National Conference. 

To support the upcoming replication activities, DELGOSEA Team also discussed the plan to promote DELGOSEA visibility through networking and communication strategies. Amongst others, the dissemination of best practices shall be promoted through the channels of the participating Local Government Associations by providing a summary of the sixteen selected best practices in each national language during strategic meetings, such as board meetings or annual conferences. During the next months cooperation with other strategic partners will be strengthened and the media broadly used to promote BP dissemination.
