Oxfam Asia Regional Water Governance Program
FAIR SHARing OF NATURAL RESOURCES
The Oxfam Water Governance team in Asia has over 15 years’ experience of working on the fair sharing of natural resources and benefits. We work in the Mekong, Salween, Ganges and Brahmaputra and Meghna river basins.
Oxfam is present in these basins where millions of people have limited and insecure access to water and are exposed to water-induced natural hazards such as droughts and floods.
We work with governments, civil society, river networks, researchers, academics, developers and the private sector, youth and indigenous groups with a special focus on gender.
We promote networking and knowledge sharing by bringing communities and partners together within and across borders and linking communities to sub-regional, regional and international institutions so their collective voices are heard.
Our portfolio of projects includes supporting communities to understand and protect their fisheries, promoting women champions, supporting pilots for alternative energy options and transboundary early warning systems.
