Webinar Series: The Mekong, China, & Southeast Asian Transitions
In recent decades, people living in the Lower Mekong Region have witnessed major shifts from predominantly subsistence agriculture to industrializing economies, with attendant changes in migration, crop production systems, and major infrastructure(roads, dams, industrial estates).
