WLE Greater Mekong
WLE Greater Mekong works entirely through partnerships. Even the Coordination and Change Project is a partnership between the WLE and Village Focus International. All projects are implemented by consortia with a minimum of three partners. Currently, the programme has 80 formal partners. Since 2003, the programme has worked with 170 different regional and international partners.
Our partners include .
WLE Greater Mekong coordinates the largest water network in the region.
WLE Greater Mekong’s research work targets three types of agencies:
Our projects work together with the government agencies to co-develop solutions to water-related problems. Governments are targeted because they have the scope and magnitude to deliver change at large scales.
Private investments are a key driver of environmental, economic and social change across the region. Because the magnitude of investment is so large, WLE Greater Mekong targets the private sector to improve and strengthen environmental and social best practices to minimise associated negative impacts.
Where research capacity requires strengthening; and where novel ideas and innovation have a ready audience.
The CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) is a global research program that promotes a new approach to sustainable agricultural intensification in which a healthy functioning ecosystem is seen as a prerequisite to agricultural development, resilience of food systems and human well-being. This program is led by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), a member of the CGIAR System Organization, a global research partnership for a food-secure future.
The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) advises the Government on international development policy and manages Australia’s overseas aid program. WLE Greater Mekong is funded in part by Australian Aid.
