Taking the impact of the dam on the local ecosystem environment in the lower Mekong River in Southeast Asia as a case study, the talk will discuss the impact of large-scale infrastructure projects on the local hydrological ecology, altered nutrient flows, loss of habitat and biodiversity, and increased air and water pollution. (以東南亞湄公河下游大壩對當地生態系統環境的影響為研究案例，探討大型基礎設施項目建設對當地水文生態、營養鹽流動、生物環境和多樣性以及空氣和水污染的影響。)
