Optimizing the Mekong for Fish, Floods & Energy

On a river where water is both food and power, Future H2O is about to apply science and new data to optimize for both — and potentially improve the daily lives of tens of millions

This will be the first time the environment has had a seat at the table for managing a river as big as the Mekong. And this project will be the first time anywhere in the world where a data-driven platform is enabling delivery on the three objectives: optimized food, energy and flooding.
