Chapter Summary

The propositions and recommendations made in the book A Procedural Framework for Transboundary Water Management in the Mekong River Basin are built upon the foundation of several mainstream or prevalent international environmental law concepts and theories. The book identifies and analyses the major environmental challenges in the Mekong region and the corresponding cooperative measures that have already been taken by countries in the Mekong region to avoid or mitigate any potential or existing negative environmental impact and to resolve transboundary dispute among riparian states. Having examined water management regimes at both the domestic and regional levels and from the perspectives of different stakeholders such as governments, intergovernmental organisations, business investors and civil society, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that water management in the Mekong region is largely polycentric despite efforts to promote IWRM in the region.

Keywords: civil society; intergovernmental organisations; IWRM; negative environmental impact; riparian states; transboundary dispute; water management regimes
