Start date: Oct 15, 2016, End date: Oct 14, 2019 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Wider objective of CONSEA is to ensure Biodiversity Conservation & Environmental sustainability around the Mekong River Basin. CONSEA consortium aims to develop a strong education program on biodiversity conservation in SEA. In spite of socio-economic difficulties of Cambodia and Vietnam, these countries are located in biodiversity hotspots. These territories endowed of added value are under constant pressure due to habitat loss and degradation. Challenges of CONSEA are to develop a strong cooperation in Higher Education at regional, national and international levels, in order to enhance education awareness and to share research findings. Capitalization and sharing of good practices will allow conservation and sustainability of Mekong River Basin. CONSEA project is focused on 4 HEIs partners from Cambodia and Vietnam. Four european universities from 4 different countries are involved. Their expertises are recognized around the world and they have already participated in cooperative projects with SEA, through participation in several previous Erasmus Mundus projects. In order to cover the whole Mekong river basin territories and initiate an inclusive approach, CONSEA consortium associates 6 associated partners from China and Thailand. Meanwhile, two other institutions from France and Cambodia will support and participate in CONSEA activities. CONSEA consortium plans to reinforce Master/PHD degree curriculum and humans resources in domains of Biodiversity Conservation and Environmental sustainability. In order to achieve this objective, exchanges of goods practices, training sessions of staff and PhD in EU and local training will be implemented. SEA universities partners will be equipped of equipment necessary to develop courses and practical work. Workshops and seminars are planned to ensure the relationships between universities and involved stakeholders, as well as to answer the need of labor market.
