Summary :

A general assessment of SE across Asia shows a picture of strong individual initiatives and some regional networks. Achievements are presently limited to empowerment of the immediate local community without much further reach or scale beyond that. However, there is tremendous potential and therefore we must build on these and scale up operations, outreach and impact.

There is a clear need for greater networking and capacity building for regional institutions. The course of action is two-fold, first for individual SE actors, and second for SE networks.
