Mekong River Basin, mobilising grassroots engagement and facilitating high-level dialogue for transboundary water management

A case study of the Water and Nature Initiative's activities in the Mekong. These follow a strategy of mobilizing grass-roots engagement of local stakeholders in decision making, while facilitating high-level dialogues. The initiative helped to build networked, multi-stakeholder processes which could begin to bridge local to national and regional decision making in the basin to support improved transboundary basin management. Discussion is related to water governance challenges and environmental degradation; solutions to these problems and future action.
