The Greater Mekong spans Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and Yunnan province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southern China. Woven together by the mighty Mekong, Chao Phraya and Irrawaddy rivers, the contrasting landscapes of this vast area support incredible biodiversity and are home to people from nearly 100 ethnic groups.

In spite of impressive economic growth, the Greater Mekong remains relatively poor. Sustainable use of natural resources – and equitable sharing of the gains – will be crucial for maintaining and furthering development.

WWF-Greater Mekong works with government, industry and civil society partners to ensure that, as the region develops, it doesn’t squander the natural riches that so many depend on and that drive the region’s economic future. We aim to support the countries of the region in realizing their shared vision of a poverty-free and ecologically-rich Greater Mekong.
