USAID-funded Mekong Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (Mekong ARCC) is a five-year program within the Lower Mekong Basin, covering communities in Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. The USAID Mekong ARCC aims to strengthen human and institutional capacity to develop and implement climate change adaptation plans and strategies; strengthen policies, tools, methodologies, and practices for ecosystem services valuation and climate resiliency; demonstrate and scale-up model actions for integrated approaches to climate change adaptation, and sustain regional learning networks to share and replicate best practices.
