IWMI research in Southeast Asia focuses on water, energy and agriculture (often in combination) with the aim of contributing to sustainable agricultural and economic growth, reducing poverty and increasing food security.
Past and ongoing research has explored innovative approaches for:
- Sustainably intensifying agricultural productivity;
- Managing risk and increasing resilience;
- Benefiting from functioning ecosystems;
- Promoting gender and social equity; and
- Maximizing shared benefits across sectors and borders.
IWMI Southeast Asia’s research has been conducted primarily within the Greater Mekong sub region. This sub region is widely perceived as one socio-economic and ecological entity, with water management as key to economic development and poverty alleviation.
To its partnerships in Southeast Asia, IWMI brings more than 30 years of experience in dealing with land and water issues across the developing world, with a particular focus on challenges that poor communities face.
