Mekong River System Science Data Workshop - “Science for a Sustainable Mekong River System”

The International Crane Foundation is collaborating with the U.S. Geological Survey and the Mekong University Network to organize a workshop in Ho Chi Minh City to discuss about science data for the Mekong basin region. We would like to invite you to attend our Mekong River System State of the Science Workshop which is planned for September 16-18, 2014 at the University of Science, Vietnam National University – Ho Chi Minh City.

The primary goal of the workshop is to assess scientific information that can be used by government officials and others to validate, identify, and prioritize needed scientific studies in the Mekong River Basin, with a focus on sustainable river resources and dependent ecosystems. This will be accomplished through completion of data assessments for six selected science topics. Each workshop session should include presentations of topical data assessment by topic co-leaders.  The data topics addressed are not all-inclusive, but data for these topics do include most key physical, chemical, and biological data needed to assess key physical and chemical processes. These processes are known to drive the ecological structure and function of river channels and their riparian buffers, and they evaluate changes in river systems in response to climatic, regulatory, and other anthropogenic impacts.
