BBC Interview on Save the Mekong Delta

Hear Prof Matt Kondolf’s interview on the BBC’s Science in Action:

The Mekong Delta is home to 17 million people and is Vietnam’s most productive agricultural region. An international group of scientists warn this week that almost all of the low lying delta will have sunk beneath the sea within 80 years without international action. Its disappearance is the result of both sea level rise and developments such as dams and sand mining. (Image: Muaz Jaffar/EyeEm/Getty Images via BBC Science in Action)
