The objectives of the workshop are to promote the sharing of information and best practices among Mekong countries in transboundary aquifer management. The key players of each country in the Mekong River Basin are invited to address major issues and status of the groundwater management. Strategy to enhance collaboration to adapt to future challenges between neighboring countries is also discussed.
