WLE is proud to announce that a longtime partner, the International Centre for Environmental Management, currently a project partner on the MK23 and MK24 projects, has recently launched the seven-volume Resource Kit for Building Resilience and Sustainability in Mekong Towns.

Prepared for the Asian Development Bank, the Resilience Kit is based on ICEM’s award-winning climate resilience work in the Mekong Region.

Over the course of two years, workshops and field visits brought together scientists, planners, and government officials in three towns in the GMS—Battambang, Cambodia; Dong Ha, Vietnam; and Kaysone Pomvihane, Lao PDR—to conduct vulnerability assessments and design green infrastructure solutions for some of the most complex infrastructure issues they face. The tools they used and the green infrastructure techniques they included in their designs make up the bulk of this kit, as do the stories of each town’s experience.

The volumes can be downloaded in English, Khmer, Lao, and Vietnamese at icem.com.au/resilience.
