Lower Mekong Initiative Grant Opportunity: The U.S. Embassy Bangkok announces a competition for organizations in the Lower Mekong area (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam) interested in projects that fall under one of the Lower Mekong Initiative’s (LMI) six pillars: Agriculture and Food Security, Connectivity, Education, Energy Security, Environment and Water, Health, or the cross-cutting areas of the nexus of water, energy, and food security development challenges and gender equality and women’s empowerment. Programs must work toward the goal of equitable, sustainable, and inclusive growth among the five LMI partner countries by collaboratively addressing regional trans-boundary development and policy challenges.

Proposals in which a foreign government (including regional, municipal, or other local-level government) is a grantee or intended beneficiary of the award will not be considered.
