This informative and critical account of the experience in planning for development of the water resources of the Mekong basin is unique in at least two respects: it describes the Mekong experience; it also provides a concrete demonstration of how international thinking and action on water management evolved over the years following 1958. The author describes what was done, and why, in the Mekong, while encouraging thoughtful evaluation of possible lessons for use elsewhere. Over four decades, the prevailing notions of what are important factors in water planning for the Mekong basic evolved significantly: the attention given to the social and economic condition of indigenous peoples grew notably; investigation of the inter-relations of human activity and the quality of ecosystem processes changed radically; methods of assessing the needs for hydroelectric power and the full consequences of proposed large reservoirs evolved drastically. The work over several decades of Hiroshi Hori and other UN experts, combined with the accumulated Japanese experience in the region, have laid the foundations for current development efforts in the Mekong basin. The Mekong is not only a comprehensive description of the basin and of unfolding policies for its development. It also provokes critical appraisal of evolving water-management theory and practices and illuminates probems of environment and development faced elsewhere in the world.

In Southeast Asia, China’s growing economic and political strength has been accompanied by adept diplomacy and active promotion of regional cooperation, institutions and integration. Southeast Asian states and China engage in ‘strategic regionalism’: they seek regional membership for regime legitimation and collective bargaining; and regional integration to enhance economic development, regarded as essential for ensuring national and regime security. Sino-Southeast Asian regionalism is exemplified by the development plans for the Mekong River basin, where ambitious projects for building regional

An international river basin is an ecological system, an economic thoroughfare, a geographical area, a font of life and livelihoods, a geopolitical network and, often, a cultural icon. It is also a socio-legal phenomenon. This book is the first detailed study of an international river basin from a socio-legal perspective. The Mekong River Basin, which sustains approximately 70 million people across Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, provides a prime example of the socio-legal complexities of governing a transboundary river

The Mekong Basin in Southeast Asia is one of the largest international river basins in the world. Its abundant natural resources are shared by six riparian countries and provide the basis for the livelihoods of more than 75 million people. However, ongoing socio-economic growth and related anthropogenic interventions impact the region’s ecosystems, and there is an urgent need for the monitoring of the basin's land surface dynamics. Remote sensing has evolved as a key tool for this task, allowing for

The catchment area of the Mekong River and its tributaries extends from China, through Burma/Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and to Vietnam. The water resources of the Mekong region - from the Irrawaddy and Nu-Salween in the west, across the Chao Phraya to the Lancang-Mekong and Red River in the east- are increasingly contested. Governments, companies, and banks are driving new investments in roads, dams, diversions, irrigation schemes, navigation facilities, power plants and other emblems of conventional 'development'.
