North/North Network Partners and Offices

Project Overview

Because of the large geographic scope of the North/North Network activities, regional offices are established in Beijing (China Region), Moscow (Russia Region) with regional branches in Khabarovsk and Vladivostok and Prague (Central and Eastern Europe). Russia and China anticipate additional branch offices to address the magnitude of workload. It is also anticipated that a Regional Office will be established in Western Europe.

Regional Offices manage their own projects and priorities with coordination and assistance from the Secretariat and other regional offices. Each Regional Office Director will sponsor projects.
