Abstract

Together with delegations of the World Bank and FAO, who carried out a project supervision mission, the consultant Gerrit Carsjens and FAO-LEAD officer Pierre Gerber carried out a technical support mission to Vietnam, Thailand and Guangdong from April 13 to 24 2007. In each country the mission comprised: 1. A workshop with invited experts on the possibilities and needs of a spatial Decision Support Tool (DST) in the form of a GIS computer model. 2. Expert consultations about potential collaborations. Important conclusions from the workshops can be summarized as follows: there is a keen interest for a spatial DST in all the countries. However it will have to take into account the needs of users at national as well as the more local level. The DST should be a tool to support strategic planning and decision making at national level as well as decision making on the allocation of livestock farms at the local level.
