Floods, Fish and People: Challenges and Opportunities in the Mekong River Basin
Hosted at UW-Seattle Kane Hall Room 130
Gordon Holtgrieve, H. Mason Keeler Associate Professor, Aquatic Fishery Sciences, College of the Environment
Freshwater ecosystems provide food security, energy and water to people in the Mekong River Basin. Habitat alterations, pollution, climate change and over-exploitation are putting the health and livelihood of communities at risk. Professor Holtgrieve is working in the Mekong River Basin to address how energy policy, watershed hydrology and ecosystems interact, in order to mitigate the effects of hydrologic and climatic change around the globe.
