The most detailed map of Mekong dams

Mekong damsVisualizing the scope of development on the Mekong River just got much easier. The Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF)-Mekong has compiled an extensive database that they assert includes every known dam and reservoir that is planned, commissioned, or under construction in the Mekong River Basin. Now, the group has created a detailed map of those locations, revealing the extent of basin development either underway or on the horizon. The group compiled dam locations from the Mekong River Commission, Google Earth, and other sources. Explore the interactive satellite map and download map images at the CPWF Mekong website. CPWF is part of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and has worked in the Mekong since 2004.
