The Federation of Engineering Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (FEIAP) held its annual General Assembly in Perth in July 2016. FEIAP is an international member of WFEO with members from mainly the Asia and Pacific region. This was the first time that the General Assembly has been held in Australia, from 6 to 9 July. FEIAP standing technical committees in education, environment, disaster risk management and information technology also held their meetings during the sessions. 15 nations were represented at the meeting as well as the UNESCO Director of the Jakarta Office.

Highlights included the reporting of progress made in engineering supporting members to achieve engineering education standards in accordance with the FEIAP Engineering Guidelines. These guidelines are supported by UNESCO. The Pakistan Engineering Council was recognised as meeting these requirements during the meeting. The environment committee discussed the development of an accreditation standard for green infrastructure. The disaster risk management is developing a guidance manual on managing specific natural disaster risks.

These initiatives are consistent with UN Sustainable Development Goals including quality education (Goal 4), infrastructure (Goal 9) and sustainable cities (Goals 11).
