Welcome to a SATREPS in Cambodia

SATREPS stands for Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development. The project is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). A SATREPS in Cambodia is a 5-year project starting from December 2015 until November 2020. The main institutions of the projects are: (1) Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, and (2) Institute of Technology of Cambodia, Cambodia. 
Project Title
"Establishment of Environmental Conservation Platform of Tonle Sap Lake"

Fig. 1: Tonle Sap Lake basin, Cambodia

The project aims to development of water environment analytical tool of Tonle Sap Lake and establish an environmental conservation platform through the elucidation of the lake and the tool development.

In the long run (till 2025 for next 10 years)

  1. To establish solid research-oriented structure and facilities in ITC at international level
  2. To introduce science-based management to the government of Cambodia                           
  3. To enhance Tonle Sap Environmental Platform (TSEP) to an international hub of freshwater ecology and management in Southeast Asia
Outcomes for the Societies
  1. Development of Analysis Tool of Water Environments of Tonle Sap Lake (Promotion of Science and Engineering)
  2. Tonle Sap Water Environmental Platform
  3. Promotion of Science and Engineering
  • Quantify environmental impacts on Tonle Sap Lake and its marginal regions in a quantitative manner
  • Quantify the impact of global climate change regions in a quantitative manner
  • Support the establishment of environmental quality standards of the lake
  • Support the establishment of effluent standards around the lake

Capacity Building

  1. Training including joint field survey, chemical analysis, modelling, QAQC, and data sharing through an establishment of analytical lab and exchange of engineers and researchers between Cambodia and Japan
  2. Meeting including workshop, seminar, and symposium
  3. Establishing graduate programs in the field of environmental science and engineering
  4. Jointly developing educational programs for increasing environmental awareness and understanding
  5. Promoting human resource development and disseminating technologies into ongoing management practices
