The book focuses on water governance in the Mekong region. The authors, Mekong citizens and other living and working in the region, depict the challenges involved in water governance at multiple levels.
The book describes how water governance is undertaken in practice as illustrated by first-hand studies from various places. It explores problems of moving from abstract discussions of policy alternatives to specific challenges of implementation and decision-making in specific places. It deals with some common generalizations to explain policy-practice gaps and the ways these have been studied.
The book contains ten high quality research papers, ranging from fisheries to energy and forests, and collective reflections by the editors and the researchers on how to make research more policy-relevant and influential.
