Mekong River Commission 2019 Annual Report


Mekong River Commission (MRC) annual report for 2019 was released​ today.

Extreme low flows and extensive flooding of different communities along the Mekong River in 2019 and an increasing number of droughts that have occurred in many parts of the region in recent years are among the signs that the Mekong region is facing increasing risk from extreme weather events and developments, says a new report by the Mekong River Commission.

“Flood and drought have hit our region hard lately and require stronger regional collaboration. The countries along the Lower Mekong River need to step up their collective efforts in addressing the problems facing them now and in the future, for example by ensuring transparency, quality and timeliness in water data sharing,” CEO Hatda says as the MRC releases its 2019 Annual Report today.
