Key Achievements and Success Stories
The Annual Report describes the success stories of the key achievements and progress of the Mekong River Commission during 2021 as the first year of implementation of the MRC Strategic Plan (MRC SP) 2021-2025, which is integrated with the Basin Development Strategy (BDS) 2021-2030. Despite having a difficult year in 2021 during the pandemic, some major preparatory work has been completed to pave the way for the implementation of the Strategic Plan 2021-2025. The five Strategic Priorities are identified to direct the realization of 11 BDS Outcomes and 30 Outputs by 2030. The MRC SP 2021-2025 is also based on these five strategic priorities or dimensions, namely Environment, Social, Economic, Climate Change, and Cooperation Dimensions. Each dimension reflects each SP with its equal importance to deliver BDS Outcomes and Outputs. A total of 95 routine and non-routine activities are deemed necessary to achieve these Outputs.
