Ecology, Economics, Cultures of the Mekong Basin: From Keng Kood Koo to Pha Chan in A Changing Course      

Launched by the Thai organization TERRA, this publication records the story of Mekong riparian communities from 25 sub-districts in 7 provinces of north-eastern Thailand (Isaan). It aims to bring to life the knowledge uniquely shaped by south-east Asia’s longest international river, the Mekong River. It illustrates the delicate complexity of the Mekong hydrology and sub-ecosystems and how these provide the basis of life and livelihoods to the people along the river. It also explores the local cultures and socioeconomic values attached to it with a hint of history and ways of life. The publication in English and Thai can be found in this link: http://terraper.org/web/en/node/1824
