Central Asia Forum, PEER
The 2018 Central Asia Forum was held December 3-5, 2018 in Almaty, Kazakhstan. This three day workshop brought together PEER researchers from six Central Asian countries to discuss their work and results, as well as provided an opportunity for these researchers to build collaborative relationships with each other and regional institutions. Researchers were each given an opportunity to highlight their work with a focus on the key objectives and deliverables that they have and hope to accomplish by the end of their projects. The US National Academies also offered comprehensive financial and project management best practices tailored to each PI with one-on-one meetings with Senior Financial and Administrative Officer Jim Banihashemi. On the third day, Dr. Iman Mallakpour, University of California, Irvine gave an in-depth GIS training focused on the QGIS software package.
