Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book A Procedural Framework for Transboundary Water Management in the Mekong River Basin contains the table of contents, preface, abstract and a list of abbreviations and figures. The book identifies the major environmental challenges on the Mekong River ecosystem and the status quo of water resources management in the Mekong region, focusing on the existing water-related legal arrangements and mechanisms at both domestic and regional levels. It discusses the ongoing difficulties and as well as aspirations for reform of the water management regime. The capacity of governments and inter-governmental organisations with regard to implementation and legal regulation are also analysed, as well as the role of non-state actors on decision-making processes concerning development activities in the region. Despite attempts to reshape the management of Mekong water resources into a more integrated regime, the current frameworks at both domestic and regional levels remain fragmented.

Keywords: inter-governmental organisations; Mekong River ecosystem; water-related legal arrangements; water-related legal mechanisms
