Greater Mekong Fora

Greater Mekong Fora

The Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy has been planned as an annual event since 2011. It is the largest event of its kind in the Greater Mekong Region. It is a major, regional knowledge-sharing event. Through the forum, WLE Greater Mekong aims to (a) reduce tensions in water-related discussions; (b) create ‘safe’, non-political spaces for stakeholders to come together to informally discuss water-related issues; (c) promote cross-regional learning on issues related to the water-food-energy nexus, and networking; (d) interface research-based solutions with a non-technical public, policy-makers and the private sector.

This is not a research forum. It is oriented towards knowledge consumers and emphasises deliberation and listening, whereby participants can query, debate, and (constructively) criticize the ideas or innovations presented.
