CCOP 2021-2025 Strategic Plan

Vision

 
“To be the Leading Intergovernmental Geoscience Organization for Sustainable Development in East and Southeast Asia”

Mission

  To work together on advancing geoscience for better lives on a future earth, in line with the goals of international conventions including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development , the Sendai Framework, and the Paris Agreement, through:
  The application of geoscience knowledge and provision of technical solutions, provision of advice and geoinformation for economic development and sustainable management of the national resources and environment;
  Adapting to digital transformation in geoscience for future earth; and
  The promotion of education, capability building and outreach.

SWOT ANALYSIS
A SWOT analysis was carried out by questionnaire to all member and observing countries. The result was compiled based on returns from Member Countries. The table below summarizes the main findings. 
STRENGTHS   OPPORTUNITIES   WEAKNESSES   THREATS
- Organization with 50 years of proven records
- Well-structured organization with SC setting policy and direction and implementation by CCOP TS
- Strong and well-established network of regional geoscience government offices (national geological surveys) in the region Strong platform for international cooperation among MCs, CCs and COs
- Globally recognized geoscience organization
- Provision of activities, services and experiences among MCs, CCs & COs
- Impressive list of contribution to capacity building and resource development for the betterment of people in the region
- Strong multi-cultural perspectives and diplomacy
- High level of trust among MCs and CCs
- Strong geoscience knowledge-base and wide range of expertise Promotion & nurturing of young earth scientists
 
- Increased number of MCs and CCs and their participations
- Implementation of programmes in-line with
+ UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
+ Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
+ Paris Agreement on climate change
- E&SE Asia is among the fastest growing regions in the world
- Possibility of increasing demand of natural resources and renewable energy
- Emerging and increasing numbers of UNESCO’s Global Geoparks
- Possibility of equal opportunities of all MCs through the advancement of AI and Internet technologies
- Possibilities to apply geoscience knowledge to multi-disciplinary programmes
- Possibilities to involve private sector in its activities
 
- Limited financial support and lack of big projects
- Programmes not in-line with CCs’ & COs’ needs affects funding and constraint participation
- Less involvement of CCs and COs
- Economic and technology gaps among MCs
- Development level uneven among MCs
- Lacks of multi-disciplinary programmes
- Limited to geoscience community
- Poor communication skill of geoscientists with other professions and administrators
 
- COVID-19 pandemic; countries’ lock-down and state of emergency
- Extreme climate related disasters and impacts on food security, migration, etc.
- Less funding for MCs’ international cooperation
- Low oil and metal prices and carbon tax for oil and gas lead to less funding
- Global economic recession
- Shifting donor interests
