Fact sheet risks agriculture Mekong region

The Greater Mekong region is one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth; it is home to no fewer than 20,000 species of plants, 1,200 bird species, 800 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 430 mammal species. The region’s transition from subsistence farming to commercial agriculture presents one of the most serious threats to its rich biodiversity.

For an international NGO I analyzed risk reports about commodities grown in the region and summarized the findings in a fact sheet. This to share the findings of the reports with a broad audience.

I worked on this project together with graphical designer Max Senden and Conservation Planner Albertien Perdok. Albertien researched the risks regarding soy production. Are you interested in the fact sheet about the greater Mekong region? If you e-mail me I will send it to you.
