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.
