Name Indigenous Women Leaders in Water Governance in the Mekong: Profile Book

The Indigenous Women Leaders in Water Governance Profile Book collates the life journey of thirteen Indigenous Women from Cambodia and Thailand. They are the stories of extraordinary Indigenous women leaders who strive to defend their rivers and water sources; their access to these resources; their culture and traditions; and their efforts to gain recognition of their leadership roles within their communities.

Oxfam’s Mekong Regional Water Governance Program through the Inclusion Project phase 2 focuses on promoting social inclusion, gender equality and women’s leadership in water resource management. This includes supports to Indigenous peoples, women’s right and feminist organizations to strengthen the capacity, voice, and agency of women at national, regional and global levels. Through the work of the Asia’s Indigenous Peoples Pact and the Network of Indigenous Women in Asia Indigenous Women are supported to access space and platforms; amplify their voices, and agency; and engage directly in decision making fora on water governance, and on environmental and climate resilience issues.
