【1】 Save the Mekong

According to the current situations of the Mekong river including the issue of numerous ecosystems lose and the issue of unseasonable water level fluctuation, these issues need to be concerned critically as their effects have massively affected over 1,400 local communities (calculated from the overall Northeastern region scale of Thailand) along the Mekong river and people in the communities who rely their lives on this main river for lifetime.

         

Based on our researches and interviews, the main causes of these issues are climate change and the numerous huge constructions on the Mekong river such as dams and massive constructions relate to tourism and its attraction sites that assumed to block the fish and other small aquatic animals' pathways, invade the habitats and encroach their food chains together with resulting the water level to be abnormal.

 

The specific purposes of our works are to improve the quality of lives for people who live along the Mekong river whether they are fishermen, agriculturists, farmers, local-traders, youths and elder &  to protect, conserve, and restore the biodiversity and ecosystem of the Mekong River to be plenteous as before. 

【2】 Disaster Management

Due to the several huge constructions in the Mekong and the issue of climate change, both man-made disasters and natural disasters, which include drought and flood,  have been brought to the Mekong river mainstream and its tributaries. This results villagers along the Mekong river to be essentially suffered.

          "I used to plant yam, spring onions, and several vegetables nearby the Mekong. But once the flood came, all my vegetables are destroyed and some  part of my land    was taken with the flood"- Said Mrs. Soodjai Vilandon,a villager in Ban Muang Village, Nong Khai, Thailand
