Mekong Safeguards accelerates the sustainable infrastructure transition in the Mekong sub-region by reducing negative environmental and social impacts of large-scale energy and transport projects through the application of environmental, social, and corporate governance standards (ESG) at both local and transboundary levels. The program engages governments, banks, and communities to improve ESG standards using transnational standards or norms and best practices. It does this through direct technical assistance and capacity building and by establishing regional collaborations; and develops demand-driven tools and studies to increase access to regional planning data, standards, best practices, and research.
