SOBR Summary cover v2

Summary State of the Basin Report 2018

The Mekong River Commission’s (MRC) State of Basin Report is a flagship product of the organisation and an integral part of the MRC’s strategic planning cycle. Compiled about every five years based on the facts and figures of the available data and information, the report assesses conditions within the basin and the impacts, both positive and negative, that development and use of the water and related natural resources are having. The report thus provides a comprehensive basis for the Member Countries and other key stakeholders to discuss and determine appropriate actions by which to realise the MRC’s aims for optimal and sustainable development of the basin as set out in the 1995 Mekong Agreement.

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.
