Dear Members and Friends,

As most of you will know by now, Trine Glue Doan has resigned from the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre to further her work in the environment sector. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Trine for the time she has spent working with us. Trine's professionalism, thorough knowledge of Vietnam and dedication made it a true pleasure working with her for more than two and half years. We wish Trine all the best in her future endeavours.

Welcome to the NGO Resource Centre Newsletter for December 15 - 30, 2008.

There's not a great deal to report as we head towards the end of 2008, with no major development-related events taking place. However, the NGO RC would like to remind our members and friends to take a look at a new report available on our website, which was coordinated by the centre entitled Forms of Engagement Between CSOs & State Agencies in Vietnam. See the members section for more details.

There is one working group meeting coming up in the next two weeks: the Disaster Management Working Group will meet at 1.30pm on January 6 at the NGO RC.
