About Us

RiverWetlands.Org is a non-profit organisation involved in educational programmes relating to understanding environmental and social issues in river basins and wetlands in the Southeast Asian region.

Its roots began in 2007 when a group of international students (from Singapore, UK, Germany, Sweden, China, Canada,  and Cambodia) participated in a voluntary field investigation in Cambodia led by Dr Carl Grundy-Warr, a political geographer with research interests in the Mekong. Collaboration with local researchers, practitioners, non-governmental organisations, and community-based groups formed a sound basis for further educational collaborations. There has since been further field investigations conducted in 2011, 2016, 2018 and 2019.

RiverWetlands.org is headquartered in Singapore and consists of international team members from across Southeast Asia.
