2015 Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy 

The CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems is pleased to announce that the 2015 Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from October 21-23, 2015. 

The forum is the largest event in the Mekong Region to address the confluence of water, food and energy. It brings together regional water, food and energy professionals and thinkers to explore new and emergent ideas in water, its development and its exploitation. In 2013, the event attracted over 270 participants from 95 different institutions.

The forum is organized around a wide variety of topics with sessions led by regional and international partners. The event is not a research forum, but designed, rather, for researchers to present their innovations to potential users. All sessions are specifically designed to engage participants in discussion and deliberation, and to provide opportunities for participants to query and challenge research scientists.

Participation is by invitation only, and the number of participants limited to a maximum of 250.
