File Troff document Mekong Matters Fact Sheet

The rapid pace of development leading up to the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is creating opportunities for journalists to find innovative stories connecting environmental, business, investment, health, and/or cultural issues of regional importance. Mekong Partnership for the Environment (MPE) is supporting Mekong-region media to establish a network of sustainable development journalists. Mekong Matters supports and connects journalists who report on social and environmental impacts of development projects such as such as dams, mines, roads, oil and gas, ports, economic zones and land concessions.
