Strategy and Work Programmes
The Basin Development Strategy 2021-2020 sets out how water and related resources of the Mekong River Basin should be utilised, managed and conserved over in the next 10 years from the perspectives of the MRC member countries and in-line with the 1995 Mekong Agreement.
This Data Acquisition and Generation Action Plan (DAGAP) has been developed to provide a clearer direction to the Member Countries and the MRC Secretariat on the data requirements necessary to implement the Mekong River Basin Indicator Framework (MRB-IF). It details the mechanisms that need to be put in place and systematically implemented to acquire and/or generate data to ensure the next State of the Basin Report will not have the same data gaps of previous reports.
The Fact Sheet provides a summary of key elements of the MRC Strategic Plan 2021-2025, including strategic actions and plans that map out how the MRC will support the implementation of the Basin Development Strategy 2021-2030.
