Currently, TUEWAS connects over 50 projects across 16 Asian countries in the field of transport, environment, energy and water. At the heart of TUEWAS are Working Groups, core components which promote professional exchange and sector-specific and inter-sectoral innovation in the field of transport, environment, energy and water. Each Working Group is engaged on specific issues and work to achieve its agreed activities for the year. Besides participating in the activities, members of the respective groups are encouraged to contribute their knowledge and experience to foster knowledge, cooperation and collaboration.
