Abstract

The key activity of ODA for developing countries perhaps is thought to be supporting activities of infrastructure development. However, it could be said that the key issue is human resource development assisting a developing country dealing with economic and humanitarian issues such as poverty, global issues, conflicts and terrorism. Construction management could be one of the important areas when human resource development is considered. Based on this common understanding the International Construction Management Forum in Asia (ICMFA) was established by the faculties of several universities in Asia in November 2008. This paper discusses human resource development programs for infrastructure development and the role and function of the ICMFA to assist creating a favorable environment for technology transfer among Asian countries.
