Water and Sanitation - Transboundary Water Cooperation in the Mekong
Information Brief - August 2015
For generations the Mekong River Basin has served as a life-sustaining force, supporting the livelihoods and food security of more than 60 million people in the region. The river’s rich mosaic of ecosystems supports the world’s largest inland fisheries and exceptional riverine biodiversity that is only surpassed by the Amazon River. Sweden supports its partners in the region to address transboundary challenges in the river basin and find solutions that can best materialise through in regional cooperation.
