Second Mekong Climate Change Forum - Adaptation to Climate Change in the Transboundary Context

Home to about 60 million people, the Lower Mekong River Basin has experienced rapid development, urbanisation and population growth which have adverse effects on the Mekong resources and populations who depend on them. Climate change has increasingly placed burdens on the environment and the people. For example rising temperatures and unpredictable rainfall are bringing drought to some areas and flooding to others. The Mekong Delta is experiencing sea level rise and increasing saltwater intrusion to its ecosystems and farmland. Extreme weather events such as typhoons are increasing in frequency and severity, destroying homes, infrastructure, livestock and crops.
