Open Development Mekong (ODM) recently published a new topic page on Water resources. Water is the lifeblood of the Lower Mekong Countries. With economies and cultures inextricably connected to the Mekong River, built as they are on the production and consumption of rice and fish, people living in the Mekong countries are highly sensitive to changes in water. This is especially so for countries lying downstream of the Mekong River system and making up the river’s delta, Cambodia and southern Vietnam.
You will learn different impacts on the Mekong River and why we have to put measures as top priorities to protect our water resources at the local and regional landscapes.
