A Peaceful Corner of the Mekong Delta
In early October this year, when the rainy season was supposed to end in the Mekong Delta, local people noticed that the annual flooding time was changed. The climate change and long drought have caused the water level significantly lower than the previous years altogether. Local people are wondering that the changes of the Mekong River’s hydrology are caused by dam constructions upstream.
Whether the changes are contributed by nature itself or human, they will lead to the extinction of the unique landscapes of the river, and impact to local livelihood. Bung Binh Thien Lake in An Giang province is one of specific ecosystems, where the harmony between the lives of locals and natures still remains.
