      The Greater Mekong can be divided into two parts: the Upper Basin in Tibet and China (where the river is called the Lancang Jiang), and the Lower Mekong Basin from Yunnan downstream from China to the South China Sea (Figure ).   The objective of this book is to demonstrate achievements made, as well as challenges faced, while implementing integrated systems research to promote sustainable development of smallholder farming in the uplands of the Mekong region. The .

      WLE Greater Mekong working with its partners, has evolved two ways in which change can be delivered. The first of these approaches relates to ‘traditional research’ which there is a need for as it focuses on things like hydrology, sediments, taxonomy and other biophysical sciences.   Dams and Development Threaten the Mekong. “The dams are a very big issue for the 60 million people in the Mekong basin,” said Milton and the author of several books on the Mekong.

      Instead, this book focuses on what was once coyly termed (in the Cold War period) the “lower Mekong”—those noncommunist countries that participated in the Mekong River Commission. Second, the book would have benefited from more contextualization in the opening and closing chapters: a comparison of the Mekong region with other regions (eg. At the end of the book, he circles back to his core claim, after reviewing a mountain of evidence, and reaffirms that China’s model of development is the Mekong’s biggest threat.

Agricultural development in the Mekong basin; goals, priorities, and strategies: a staff study. The utilization of physical resources for agricultural development in the Basin is described. Unconventional attention is given to human aspects of the development of the region.

The questions posed by current strategy are not therefore merely what the River can help produce, but also what the people's aspirations in the region are and more importantly, what pace and form of development will.

Resources for the Future draws on its past experience of resource utilization, development and economics to comment on issues faced by the Mekong Basin River for agricultural development such as the demand-supply conditions for improved agriculture, the limitations imposed by physical and human resource conditions and measures needed to modernize their agricultural : Taylor And Francis.

It is aimed at river ecologists, geographers, environmentalists and development specialists both in the basin and (especially) outside for whom access to this material is most difficult.

This book will be the first comprehensive treatment of the Mekong system. Drawing heavily on political ecologies and political economics to examine the economic, social, political and ecological drivers of hydropower, the book's basin wide approach illuminates how hydropower development, and its benefits and impacts, are linked multilaterally across the basin.

The research in the book is derived from empirical research conducted from as part of the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food's Mekong programme. Basin Development Strategy (Vietnamese), Basin Development Strategy (English), Integrated Water Resource Management in the Mekong Basin Training Manual, October Assessment of Basin-wide Development Scenarios (Main Report), April Working Towards an IWRM-Based Basin Development Strategy for the Lower Mekong Basin, March Mekong countries strive to develop this sector, as there is a direct correlation between increasing agricultural yield and poverty reduction.

The diverse ecosystem of the Mekong River Basin means that some areas are conducive to high yields and others are limited by poor soil and water availability in.

This finding is highlighted in  a new book, to which scientists working with the CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) have contributed a chapter on community-driven approaches to sustainably intensifying agriculture—ensuring it adds value to the environment as well as provides food and income—in river deltas.

Buy The Mekong: A Socio-legal Approach to River Basin Development Hardback by Boer Ben, Hirsch Philip, Johns Fleur, Saul Ben, Scurrah Natalia ISBN: The Mekong river basin is a diverse region, in approximately 70 million people lived across the six countries (CDRI, ).

Compared to river basins such as the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna and the Indus average population density is generally low in the Mekong river basin, around 88 inhabitants/km2. This open access book is about understanding the processes involved in the transformation of smallholder rice farming in the Lower Mekong Basin from a low-yielding subsistence activity to one producing the surpluses needed for national self-sufficiency and a high-value export industry.

The Mekong, or Mekong River, is a trans-boundary river in East Asia and Southeast is the world's twelfth longest river and the seventh longest in Asia. Its estimated length is 4, km (2, mi), and it drains an area ofkm 2 (, sq mi), discharging km 3 ( cu mi) of water annually.

From the Tibetan Plateau the river runs through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand. Long known for its natural beauty, remoteness, and abundance of wildlife, the Mekong river basin runs through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

It is home to more than seventy million people and has for centuries been one of the world’s richest agricultural zones. Today however it is undergoing profound s: Natural resources and ecosystem services have been seriously undervalued in development planning in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB), which spans Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Intensive agriculture has initially led to higher yields, a lower poverty rate, and economic growth. The economy of the Mekong Delta is predominantly agricultural, with agriculture, fisheries and forestry accounting for 41% of GDP in and much of the industry and services sector composed of input supply, processing, trade and transport of agricultural products.

This open access book is about understanding the processes involved in the transformation of the term white gold to signify a push throughout the region beyond self-sufficiency into high-value export markets. For centuries, farmers in the Lower Mekong Basin have regarded rice as white gold.The book then explores the emerging role of China in promoting the Lancang-Mekong cooperation between China and Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam in developing the Mekong River Basin, which could determine the future water and rice security of the region.Based on the recession agriculture rule, evaluated through simulation of a dam in Lao People’s Democratic Republic, the average annual hydropower production was reduced by between and %, depending on the agricultural goal, with the loss to power occurring mainly in the months April to June.
