FSPPM Dean attended workshop on Trans-boundary Resource Management in Greater Mekong Basin

May 19, 2019

Few of the world’s transboundary river systems are managed well, or sustainably, and the Greater Mekong Basin (GMB) is an example. Cooperation among the six countries that are home to the Mekong River—China (Yunnan province), Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam—is dampened by long histories of colonialism, conquest and distrust.

Structural upstream-downstream effects, and nonoverlapping development trajectories result from wide differences in national policies and per capita incomes.

On the invitation of Emerging Market Institute, Normal University Beijing, Dr. Vu Thanh Tu Anh attended the workshop “China’s role in promoting trans-boundary resource management in the Greater Mekong Basin”.

The workshop focused on connectivity, water governance and environment sustainability, which are critical to the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation framework – a new mechanism for sub-region cooperation.

As a recognized expert in economics development and institutional economics and regular contributor to national and regional debate on development, Dr. Vu Thanh Tu Anh shared his insights on processes and procedures to ensure inter-country cooperation to maintain the environment throughout the Greater Mekong Basin.
