Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book A Procedural Framework for Transboundary Water Management in the Mekong River Basin. the book takes a procedural perspective to promote sustainability in the Mekong region, mindful of its relationship with the substantive counterparts and the fact that the distinction between procedural and substantive elements could be obscure in some cases. This choice is based on a practical consideration of the cooperation background in the Mekong region and underscores the values of procedure. The book focuses on the concept of the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and a brief explanation on why procedural elements of the IWRM should be considered as a priority compared to substantive counterparts. Deeper research is done in the context of the Mekong region regarding the criticisms and misunderstandings on IWRM itself and the prospects of improving the status quo via procedural approaches.

Keywords: Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM); Mekong region; procedural approaches; substantive elements
