The International aid and development assistance are important contributors to the economies of the Lower Mekong region. All Lower Mekong countries receive official development assistance (ODA), with Thailand also contributing ODA as a donor. Nevertheless, the region accounts for just LMC 3.37% of the world’s total ODA received in 2017, a low figure considering the significant military conflicts that the region has faced in the last five decades and the current spectre of climate change related disasters.
Open Development Mekong recently updated the Aid and Development topic page, including updated information on Chinese aid. Interesting to see the known amounts of financing that China provided to each of the LMCs, cumulative in the period 2000-2014.
