AMRC is a resource centre based at the School of Geosciences, University of Sydney. The Centre promotes research, discussion and debate on development and environment issues in the Mekong Region. Established in 1997, AMRC focuses on the role Australia plays in the region as a near neighbour, donor and major trading partner.
The Mekong Research Group (AMRC) ran for 20 years at the University of Sydney from 1997 to 2017. It was located within the School of Geosciences and served as a leading international centre of expertise on development, natural resource management and the environment in the Mekong Region. While the research group is no longer active as such, ongoing work in human geography within the School of Geosciences and research associated with the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre builds on many AMRC research initiatives, networks and postgraduate student projects.
