Mekong Research Group

The Mekong Research Group (AMRC) is a research group of the University of Sydney. Previously known as the Australian Mekong Resource Centre, and still using AMRC as shorthand, it was established in 1997 and is located within the School of Geosciences. AMRC is a leading international centre of expertise on development, natural resource management and the environment in the Mekong Region. We are devoted to research, education and community engagement and serve as a focal point for information, dialogue and activities in support of an equitable and sustainable development path for the region.

By fostering a deeper and wider understanding of contemporary changes in the Mekong Region, AMRC aims to support development paths that maintain the integrity, diversity and symbiosis of local livelihoods, cultures and ecosystems.
