Maintaining adequate water availability and quality requires appropriate and sustainable management of upstream watersheds.

In this context, applying the precautionary principle is of key importance in the Mekong region because many upstream watersheds, at least from a water resources point of view, have presently only minor or no problems with sustainable management.

Further, this publication assesses the role of the Mekong River Commission, a river basin organization responsible for the sustainable development and water resource management of the Mekong, and examines regional cooperation frameworks such as the Lower Mekong Initiative, and the Mekong-Japan Summit.
