Lower Mekong Policy Forum on Environment, Agriculture, and Livelihoods

11-12 August 2016

Tentatively in Cambodia

The Lower Mekong Public Policy Initiative (LMPPI) is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and managed by the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP), a center for public policy dialogue, research and teaching in Vietnam, and the Vietnam Program at the Ash Center, Harvard Kennedy School of Government, in the United States.

LMPPI supports inter-disciplinary research, policy engagement, and capacity building on the environment, agriculture, and livelihoods across the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB). The research strives to identify policy options for improving economic management and resource governance in order to sustain the environment, boost agricultural productivity and raise standards of living for the Basin’s residents.
