Beskrivning:
The South East Asian region faces a steadily inreasing preesure on its water resources. The ongoing rapid economic development in the region in combination with continued growth of the population with further concentrations to urban centres presents a steadily growing demand for water. A large part of the water resources in the region are carried by the Mekong River and offers a spectrum of both present and future potential risks for conflicts regarding utilisation/exploitation rigths-and needs-of not only the water itself but also other related natural resources on which peoples livelihoods depend.
