Water and Climate Crisis: The Mekong's Maritime Crisis
Indo-Pacific Maritime Hour (via Zoom) -- October 4th, 2030 (Tokyo) 1930 (Singapore) 0730 (DC)
The Mekong River is arguably Southeast Asia's most important freshwater maritime feature. Unfortunately, the river and the communities that rely on it are facing a water and climate crisis. YCAPS will host a discussion with Brian Eyler, a Senior Fellow at the Stimson Center who directs the Southeast Asia Program and the Energy, Water, and Sustainability Program. His talk will focus particularly on freshwater and land-based issues related to food production and freshwater fisheries impacts throughout the basin. He will then be available to take your questions.
