The Mekong Regional Water Governance Program

Oxfam has been implementing the Mekong Regional Water Governance Program in the Mekong region over the last decades. The governance of water resources is of critical importance to the future of the Greater Mekong region, which covers Cambodia, Thailand, Lao PDR, Vietnam, Myanmar and China (Yunnan Province). Decisions over how the water resoruces are developed, managed and shared will influence whether growth will be inclusive and equitable, or will further marginalise millions of people.

Oxfam’s Asia Water Governance Program has multiple projects that contribute  to sustainable development of water resources in key river basins, in South Asia, Mekong and the Salween basins. The Mekong Water Governance Program aims to have more inclusive, equitable water governance that reduces the impact of climate change and increases social accountability to citizens in the Greater Mekong Basin. The program envisions that communities living along the Mekong and Salween River basins are able to realise their rights to sustainable livelihoods.

The Mekong Inclusion Project (IP-1), which was funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) implemented between 2014-2020 with over AUD 9 million investment. The project has been implemented across five countries in the Lower Mekong and Salween River basins. Building on the achievements gained through the IP-1 project, the Mekong Water Governance Program is well-positioned to deliver the second phase of the Inclusion Project (2020-2024) to bring more sustainable livelihoods to riparian communities through access to river resourcs and the enviromental  services they provide. The Inclusion Project 2, with a total DFAT investment of AUD $5.4 million and SDC USD 3.2 million is jointly delivered by Oxfam and International Rivers. The project has three key domains of change:

  1. Social inclusion, Gender equality and women’s leadership
  2. Civil society engagement and networking
  3. Government and the Private Sector


The program aims for regional impact at country, regional and institutional levels.  It is managed by the Mekong Project Management Unit (PMU).

This work seeks to influence changes at the community and civil society level, as well as changes in policies and practices at the national and trans-boundary level regarding water resource governance and sustainable energy.
