Hydropower decision-making in the Mekong

One of the great things of the Third Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy, was a space called the ‘Knowledge Reservoir’, where all the organisations supported by Challenge Program Water and Food (CPWF) showcased their projects in interactive and creative ways.

Here I have decided to share a video from this session called “Improving Hydropower Decision-Making Processes in Mekong Basin Project”. This short documentary, which was produced at the Faculty of Political Science at the Chulalongkorn University in Thailand and was inspired by “the story of stuff.” It’s  interesting because it captures the type of conversations and narratives that different stakeholders discussed during the three days event.

If you are unfamiliar with these conversations, this is an excellent resource to understand the debate over hydropower that Oxfam Mekong Regional Program challenges every day.
