Activity description: The Asia Pacific Initiative (API) is a partnership between the UNU, Keio University, CISCO Systems (Japan) and LEAD (Japan). The project was launched at the World Summit on Sustainable Development as a Type II Partnership and is designed to utilize satellite technology and the Internet to link field based studies to online learning, communication and real-time next generation broadcasting. The API is an knowledge sharing project and the network of partners is gradually growing with recent additions including a number of universities in the region. Recent activities undertaken to date include multimedia broadcasting experiments (Video over IP), case study development in Okinawa (Japan), the Bangkok (Thailand) and the Greater Mekong Sub-Region, as well as the development of courses on Asia Pacific Sustainability with support from the Foundation for Advanced Studies on International Development (FASID) in Japan.
