State of the Basin Report 2018

This State of the Basin Report 2018 assesses conditions within the Mekong basin and the impacts, both positive and negative, that developments and use of the water and related natural resources create. It is intended to provide a statement of past trends and current conditions within the basin and to track changes brought about by the cooperation envisaged under the 1995 Mekong Agreement. It also seeks to highlight significant issues as well as apparent development opportunities that the Member Countries may wish to take up.

The report covers five critical dimensions, including environmental, social and economic conditions, climate change and cooperation. In addition, and for the first time, the report includes a review of conditions within the upper Mekong basin.
