Dear Undergraduate students,


The Mekong River runs through time and space, connecting diverse strands of history and different places. The field exposure trip will introduce ongoing field projects led by local researchers and practitioners, involve field trips to institutions, projects, and field sites that relate to issues of historical political, economic, and social transformation; water and energy governance; environmental sustainability and biodiversity conservation. There will be opportunities to interact with researchers and students from host institutions. 


The trip exposes participants to the country’s contemporary historical, political, social and environmental challenges. We will mix of urban and rural experiences, including home-stays on islands in the river, fieldtrips to Irrawaddy dolphin sites, flooded forests, Khmer-Lao border zone, rapids, waterfalls, and reefs, hydropower plants, the Tonle Sap (Great Lake), and Angkor Archaeological Park, with insights from specialists. The trip will also encompass company visits, government agencies, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).


The 14-day trip will be a field exploration across Phnom Penh, Kratie, Stung Treng, and Siem Reap and will be led by none other than Dr Carl Grundy-Warr, our senior lecturer from the Department of Geography who is sure to have you in peaceful, creative vibes with his vast experience in bringing countless batches of students to Southeast Asian countries to conduct fieldwork. Check out his sharing about field trips via here .
