Home to about 60 million people, the Lower Mekong River Basin has experienced rapid development, urbanisation and population growth which have adverse effects on the Mekong resources
International experts, representatives from non-governmental organisations, civil society, the private sector, regional and international organisations and government officials, gathered in Siem Reap
The Mekong River is globally important and complex and is ripe for balanced joint development that reduces risks, enhances benefits and protects the environment.
