A Home for Sustainable Mekong Future

The project represents a concerted effort to combat the threat of seawater intrusion and protect the livelihoods of farmers in the Mekong Delta while contributing to the development of a more resilient and sustainable agricultural landscape in the region.

Seawater intrusion in the Mekong Delta has emerged as a pressing challenge with far-reaching consequences.

The livelihoods of millions of farmers are being heavily impacted, and the future of coastal provinces is under threat as saltwater continues to penetrate deeper into the land each year.

To tackle this issue, Mekong Salt Lab has been established as a collaborative initiative aimed at addressing salinity-related challenges. Drawing on a wide range of expertise and insights, the project seeks to develop effective strategies for salinity mitigation and adaptation.

The Mekong Salt Lab aims to achieve the following objectives:

Further developing expertise in salinity mitigation and adaptation, encompassing aspects such as freshwater management and integrated and adaptive planning.

Transferring interdisciplinary expertise to farmers, equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills to adapt swiftly to salinity challenges.

Facilitating knowledge exchange and fostering collaborative efforts with local stakeholders and international partners, creating a dynamic platform for collective action.
