You’re picturing the Mekong Basin, the area that surrounds the Mekong River in southeast Asia. This region spans six countries, is nearly twice the size of California and directly supports the livelihoods of more than 60 million people.
It’s an amazing place. We depend on it.
But we’re also changing it — and not always for the better.
