You’ll find blogs (below) on the BIG proposed dam in Laos – and Vietnams anger about the possible downstream effects - since almost all of South Vietnam comprises the Mekong Delta! That big dam has been put on hold for ten years waiting for environmental studies which is some relief for Cambodia and Vietnam who depend on the river for protein for millions of people.

Meanwhile there are a LOT of smaller dams proposed for the the tributaries. THE LINK above takes you to a new report on the possible effect of those smaller dams. I hope Vietnam is reading this report!! The effect on fish stocks could be disastrous. We’ll keep watching the news and protesting loudly if and when we are needed. John.
