About this grant

Mekong Watch was established to address and prevent the negative impacts of development projects funded particularly by official Japanese development assistance in the Mekong Region. To achieve this goal, Mekong Watch will continue monitoring controversial projects and researching the relevant policies and practices of international financial institutions; developing resources for the public by compiling the information gathered through monitoring and research activities; and advocating for improving the policies and performance of international financial institutions, in order to resolve or prevent negative environmental and social impacts from their projects.
