The Situation

02 Aug 2018 description

Introduction

The Mekong region – consisting of Vietnam, Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), and Cambodia - is frequently affected by natural disasters, especially floods, droughts and typhoons. With the vast majority of the population in the three countries largely relying on agriculture, people’s livelihoods are often damaged by recurrent hazards, coupled with irregular seasonal patterns caused by climate change. Deforestation, erosion of riverbanks and improper land use are additional man-made factors augmenting the impact of these events.
