Who we are
This website is the face of the Mekong Water Data Initiative (MWDI), a program of the Sustainable Infrastructure Partnership (SIP). SIP is a not-for-profit program managed by Pact Thailand and funded by the US Department of State (DOS). We work with governments, businesses, academia, civil society and scientists in the Mekong region to tackle shared water resource challenges.
SIP has a twin focus on training and capacity building for managing interactions among water, energy and food systems (the water-energy-food nexus), and on sharing water data through MWDI.
We work under the umbrella of the Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI), a multinational partnership launched in 2009 by the US with Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam to promote cooperation in the Lower Mekong subregion.
The University of Virginia partners with SIP to manage this website.
