DAAD Alumni Network PUDSEA

Abstract
PUDSEA – Peri-Urban Development in South-East Asia was established in 2001 as an information network between Asian and European Universities, funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The basic idea was to foster contacts between Universities and their Alumni beyond their stay in Germany as well as to facilitate networking between Alumni themselves.
In the meantime, PUDSEA has grown up to a multi-stakeholder collaboration, also including non-Alumni, by successively integrating local stakeholders.
With active participation of these local stakeholders PUDSEA aims to promote an economically, environmentally sustainable, and socially just development process of Peri-Urban Areas in South-East Asia.
