About the Mekong Water Data Platform

The Mekong Water data platform is part of the multi-partner effort to support the Mekong Water Data Initiative (MWDI) and the goals of the Lower Mekong Initiative.  The MWDI encourages Mekong stakeholders to share water and water-related data and collaborate to ensure the long-term sustainability of the Mekong River basin.  

The Mekong Water data platform will be deployed in several stages.  In the first stage, the Mekong Hydroshare data management system is offered at no cost to Mekong stakeholders (more on Mekong Hydroshare can be found HERE).  In the 2nd stage (coming in 2020), web-based tutorials and in-person trainings will be delivered to encourage use of peer-to-peer data exchange mechanisms (more information on the Mekong Data Exchange can be found HERE).  Additional deployment stages will incorporate the data, tools, and services shared through the Mekong Water data platform as part of capacity building exercises provided through the Lower Mekong Initiative.

The purpose of the Mekong Water data platform is to provide the means and resources for Mekong stakeholders to share data and collaborate in ways that meet their needs.  Through this platform, Mekong users can also share and access publicly available water and water-related data, tools, and services from global partners.


Mekong Data Resources

Discover, use, and share data.

Mekong Hydroshare is a community database where Mekong users can store and share their data securely and for free.  Mekong Hydroshare is built on the U.S. Hydroshare community.

In addition to sharing water data in the Mekong, users can also access a catalog of publicly available data portals, models, and analyses tools from global partners such as USGS, NASA, NOAA, etc.
