Rayanakorn, K. (2011). Climate Change Challenges in the Mekong Region. A joint collaboration between the Public Policy Studies Institute of Chiang Mai University, the Australian Mekong Resource Centre and the World Agroforestry Centre. Chiang Mai University Press: Chiang Mai.
The chapters in this book, by writers mostly from the GMS countries, explore various issues concerning climate change. The chapters cover topics which are both regional and country specific, ranging from climate change impacts and adaptation strategies in the areas of agriculture and water resources management, mitigation measures, to the role of climate change in reframing resource politics in the GMS. Collectively, the chapters illustrate the local impacts of climate change in the GMS and actions which have been taken in terms of adaptation and mitigation. They also highlight major issues which need to be addressed by policymakers.
