"The Mekong Infrastructure Tracker database builds on existing data to present a comprehensive source of information on energy, transportation, and water infrastructure in the Mekong countries. The database relies primarily on open sources of data, including government agencies, news and media, non-governmental organizations, companies involved in infrastructure development, as well as multinational institutions and other research institutions which share data sets. Most are publicly available on the Internet."
