Dear ACHR friends,
If you've been feeling our communications from ACHR have become a little sparse, here's a corrective: a big, fat and long-overdue ACHR E-News bulletin, full of stories about what's going on in the network and what kind of new projects we're all working on together:
- Saving Tibetan buildings and artisanship in Leh, India
- World Habitat Day celebrations stretch into the months in Thailand
- Canal-side community breakthroughs in Thailand and Indonesia
- News from the Asian Community Architects Network (CAN)
- ACHR makes a splash at the seventh Asia Pacific Urban Forum in Penang
- 2 New ACHR regional projects: 5 Model Cities + Collective Housing in Asia
- Updates on two ACHR research projects: KNOW study + Food Security Study
- Community Development Funds are still active in 8 cities in Vietnam
- UCLG Global Report on Housing Policies is out
- Bad times for street vendors in several Asian countries
Please have a look and send us your comments and additions. And as always, please do keep us in the loop about your own projects and initiatives. The new e-news bulletin can be downloaded from the "ACHR E-news Bulliten" set under the "Library" tab.
And all good wishes and happy holidays from the team at the ACHR secretariat in Bangkok:
- Tom, Somsook, Minh Chau, Brenda, Natvipa, Chai and Pi Moi.
