Events & Activities
MEKONG ENERGY AND ECOLOGY NETWORK (MEE NET)
MEE Net's mission is targeted towards energy issues, especially electricity structure, governance and policies, to sustain local livelihoods and the delicate ecology in the Mekong Region. To this end, it organizes a variety of events and activities.
The next round of the community-centered strategic environmental assessment (CSEA), which we're expanding to another 14 villages along the Ayeyarwady River in addition to the 11 we facilitated last year, is happening soon. To train community research facilitators in the new villages, we're hosting a workshop 19-21 August. For more information, check out our CSEA page.
Although we didn't have as many new staff as originally planned, our orientation went awesomely! We developed a clearer idea of what MEE Net's purpose is now and for the next six months and year, and we developed strategies for how to carry out that purpose. The MEE Net team is comprised of our coordinating team and independent researchers who work on closely related issues with MEE Net, and the team includes members from a variety of the Mekong Region countries.
