Technical Paper Series
Technical Paper No.34
The report provides an introduction to the theoretical landscape of planning adaptation to climate change and draws out key issues that are relevant to countries in the Lower Mekong River Basin (LMB) in the selection of approaches for adaptation planning.
Technical Paper No.30
The report assesses the number of people relying on the Mekong River’s natural resources for their livelihoods, where these populations are located, and how
vulnerable they might be to changes triggered by regulated flows.
Technical Paper No.28
