Political Interests Dam(n)ing The Mekong

Mark Zeitoun, Professor of Water Security, University of East Anglia

Political Interests Dam(n)ing The Mekong

In conjunction with World Water Day, we turn our attention to the disputed Mekong River Basin, where population growth, low rainfall, and relentless dam-building has placed a stranglehold on the resource-rich Mekong River, which runs from China all the way down through Thailand. Lives and livelihoods depend on the preservation of the Mekong - yet will political interests win out? We speak to Mark Zeitoun, Professor of Water Security at the University of East Anglia, for more insight.
