The Mekong River traverses mountains and valleys and can be a source of conflict between states and peoples. 

In Asia, states are increasingly vulnerable to water insecurity from the river Jordan to the Mekong. In response to this, the RSIS Centre for NTS Studies and APU are co-organising a workshop to explore key water security issues to promote cooperation and deter conflict. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together experts, policymakers and influencers in the field to discuss case studies and examples of both conflict and cooperation from East, South-East, South and West Asia.  

The objectives of this conference are to:

  1. Identify key drivers of water conflict and cooperation in Asia.
  2. Appraise current mechanisms, pinpoint key actors, and assess vulnerabilities in trans-boundary water resource management.
  3. Evaluate solutions to minimise and manage water conflicts and insecurity.
