About this title


We are facing rapidly increasing risk of failure in decision-making about large-scale infrastructure in the Mekong Region. What can we do? Give up? No. In the present political conditions, the donors and lenders to the major institutions should really wake up. The momentum and success for better governance in the future depends increasingly on local persons and communities. A radical shift of resources to local institutions with donor support is necessary and urgent. This book provides concrete and concise cases as well as encouragement for discussing, reconsidering and adapting actions to address the current impasse in Mekong water governance. -- Juha Sarkkula Environmental Specialist Finnish Environment Institute

This book unpacks knowledge in contested arenas of water governance in the Mekong region by studying the role of dialogues, action-research, the workings of informal and state organizations, and expert perceptions. The researchers and contributors demonstrate how knowledge is negotiated, claimed, or how it may cloak particular agendas and dynamics. The book shows us how knowledge becomes political. -- Bernadette P. Resurrección Senior Research Fellow Stockholm Environment Institute
