Key Publication

Launched on March 14 International Day of Action for Rivers, Fair Finance Asia (FFA)'s new report, Enhancing Sustainable Finance in Mekong Hydropower: Challenges, Opportunities, and Ways Forward, highlights key gaps in national and regional regulations, and in the environmental and human rights due diligence policies of banks providing cross-border financing to Mekong River hydropower projects.

Developed in collaboration with research partner, Profundo, and in consultation with national coalitions in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Thailand, this report aims to serve as a key source of information and recommendations for groups urging for sustainable Mekong region hydropower financing and, more broadly, for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to strengthen frameworks supportive of Asia’s just energy transition.

About Fair Finance Asia

Fair Finance Asia (FFA) is a regional network of Asian Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) committed to ensuring that financial institutions’ funding decisions in the region respect the social and environmental well-being of local communities.

In doing so, we see a role for banks to actively contribute towards reversing social injustice and environmental destruction, as well as for financial regulators and supervisors to play a critical role in making banks move swiftly in a sustainable direction.
