Support for MRC Summit
Through this activity, the AWP contributed to the development of policies and practices for the Mekong River Commission to guide equitable and sustainable development of hydropower in the Mekong River Basin.
In April 2018, Australian Partners—Entura Hydro Tasmania, Geoscience Australia, and Global Change Advisory—were supported to attend the third Mekong River Commission (MRC) Summit in Cambodia, which brought together political leaders and water specialists to address the prevailing challenges and opportunities facing the Mekong Basin. The focus of the Summit was on ‘enhancing joint efforts and partnerships towards achievement of the sustainable development goals in the Mekong River Basin’. The Summit provided the opportunity for Partners to share Australia’s experience and technology in relation to water information systems, hydropower investment and operations in the energy sector, including the Digital Earth Australia and Open Data Cube technology.
