Project Code: STATE-THA-221
|Project Title||Communicate + Collaborate: Mighty Mekong Dashboard|
|Project Summary||Design and update an online dashboard that keeps policymakers and foreign government officials apprised of U.S. government activities in the Lower Mekong Region.|
|Country/Region of Focus||East Asia and Pacific|
|Agency||Department of State|
|Number of Interns||2|
The U.S. government's growing partnerships in the Indo-Pacific region includes collaborations in education, media, cultural exchange, environmental safeguards, and global health security. The Lower Mekong Region (Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam) remains a key region of interest in Southeast Asia. The U.S. Government funds a range of projects through the Department of State’s Lower Mekong Initiative, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USAID, and many others. Keeping track of all of these projects and conferences is a challenge, and coordination is key. We need an enterprising intern to build and update an informative, lively website that will inform governments and partners about the full range of collaborations in the Lower Mekong Region.
