Mekong River: In the Economy

This Mekong River in the Economy (MRitE) report is intended to reframe the debate around development and water resources management. The focus of the report is to reduce the compartmentalisation that takes place between water resources planners and economic development planning along the Mekong Basin. With looming decisions around hydropower development, industrial expansion, fisheries and, in general, regional economic growth within the Basin, the time for integration of understanding across sectors and countries in the basin is of paramount importance. Short narratives or stories for each country have been created, highlighting the major risks and opportunities for different sectors within the country. Each of these is dependent on a different factor within the Mekong Basin. These narratives have been developed to capture the attention of major policy makers across different countries and sectors in the Mekong Basin.
