Knowing the Salween River: Resource Politics of a Contested Transboundary River

von Springer-Verlag GmbH

This open access book focuses on the Salween River, shared by China, Myanmar, and Thailand, that is increasingly at the heart of pressing regional development debates. The basin supports the livelihoods of over 10 million people, and within it there is great socio-economic, cultural and political diversity. The basin is witnessing intensifying dynamics of resource extraction, alongside large dam construction, conservation and development intervention, that is unfolding within a complex terrain of local, national and transnational governance. With a focus on the contested politics of water and associated resources in the Salween basin, this book offers a collection of empirical case studies that highlights local knowledge and perspectives. Given the paucity of grounded social science studies in this contested basin, this book provides conceptual insights at the intersection of resource governance, development, and politics of knowledge relevant to researchers, policy-makers and practitioners at a time when rapid change is underway.- Fills a significant knowledge gap on a major river in Southeast Asia, with empirical and conceptual contributions- Inter-disciplinary perspective and by a range of writers, including academics, policy-makers and civil society researchers, the majority from within Southeast Asia- New policy insights on a river at the cross-roads of a major political and development transition

Kritik


"Knowing the Salween River is a welcome addition to the research on transboundary water conflicts, environmental politics, and Southeast Asia resource issues. ... it is a clearly written and accessible book. For all of us, it is an important opportunity to educate ourselves about the challenges facing communities in the basin, and to learn about their efforts to create just and sustainable futures." (Coleen Fox, Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography, Vol. 41, 2020)
