This video is a form of science diplomacy requested by the U.S. Department of State to educate policy-makers and citizens in Southeast Asia about the vital importance of the Mekong river and delta in maintaining food security and livelihoods in the region. The video also seeks to make policy-makers aware of the potential impacts of climate change on people and the environment of the Mekong delta. It is available in English, as well as the four languages of the Lower Mekong nations.
