Name Generating Sustainable Energy Solutions in the Mekong River Basin

Negative effects brought on by the poor planning for hydropower development in the Mekong basin will put the 60 million people living in the Mekong basin at risk and severely impact the river’s bountiful ecosystem. Laos alone has plans to build more than one hundred dams in the basin. Each time Laos notifies the Mekong River Commission (MRC) on the next major dam project on the Mekong River’s mainstream, the classic argument between dam proponents and anti-dam stakeholders reaches a fever pitch.
