State of Knowledge: Women and Rivers in the Mekong Region

This State of Knowledge: Women and Rivers in the Mekong Region highlights women’s contributions - both actual and potential - to better governance, social, and environmental outcomes for rivers in the Mekong region. The report spotlights women’s achievements in water decision-making and river governance, but also the major barriers to their leadership and “visible” participation. It flags key points of inequity across the six countries of the Mekong region, and also references good practice examples, as defined by women themselves, where women have assumed important and influential roles in governing the rivers and water resources on which they and their communities depend.
