MRC steps up monitoring of Mekong flows

VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/ANN) — The Mekong River Commission (MRC) is closely monitoring the flow of the Mekong amid growing threats from fluctuating weather conditions.

“During this current period of regionally low flow and historically severe drought, the MRC is doing its utmost to predict and inform stakeholders about changes in flow, so that downstream countries and communities can prepare and plan,” Dr Sothea Khem, who is the River Forecasting Specialist with the MRC Secretariat, said this week.
