Lately, food security in the Mekong region has been challenged by the series of hydropower development proposals on the Mekong mainstream. To put light on this issue, Shared Waters Partnership continues to enhance dialogues on food security in the Mekong River Basin.
As follow-up of the Chiang Rai workshop that was held in March this year, Shared Waters Partnership will hold additionally two workshops focused on food security in the Mekong; one in Phnom Penh, December 2-3, and one in Can Tho, December 5-6. The workshops will be held back-to-back to utilise international/regional expertise in fisheries, agriculture and livelihoods.
Cambodia and the Vietnamese Delta are the most sensitive areas for food security due to alteration of the Mekong mainstream. The aim is to bring together national/local stakeholders based in Cambodia and Vietnam to discuss food security to promote science-based decision making and to support local capacity.
The Shared Waters Partnership now calls for papers for oral presentation during the workshops.
