Mekong River Commission SEA of hydropower on the Mekong mainstream:

ICEM was commissioned by the Mekong River Commission to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of 11 planned hydropower dams along the mainstream Mekong River, in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam. The SEA ran for 12 months and assessed the wider economic, social and environmental implications of the proposed developments. The final SEA report is also available to download below in English and Vietnamese. The Vietnamese translation was completed in collaboration with Pan Nature.
