Vientiane, Lao PDR, 15th Feb 2018
The Mekong River Commission (MRC) is organizing a writing competition and inviting you to submit a short entry that depicts what the Mekong River means to you as an individual or a citizen of a Mekong country.
This competition is organized to celebrate our 3rd Mekong River Commission Summit on 4 April and Mekong Day on 5 April this year and will reflect how important the Mekong River is to us all. That is why we would love to hear your unique voice.
We are looking for a short entry of a few sentences long (maximum 60 words) that tells us your connection with the River and its importance to you – the Mekong River and you.
You may look for the connection in many ways. These may include: use of the Mekong and its tributary water and natural resources (i.e. domestic water supply, irrigation, fishing, farming, flood control, hydropower generation, river transport, and tourism); ecosystems; infrastructure development; and more.
The winners may be invited to the MRC International Conference in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on 2-3 April 2018. Winning entries will be displayed at this International Conference and the Mekong Day, presented to leaders of the Mekong Countries at the 3rd MRC Summit, and featured in other products of the MRC.
If you have any question and can’t find the answer on this page, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office at +856-21-263263.
