Présentation de l'éditeur

Worsening inequality, combined with changing climate and environment, are key challenges for sustainable growth and stabillity in the Mekong River Basin. The increasingly complex landscape calls for stepping up efforts towards establishing a sound integrated approach to sustainable development across the region. This research compilation constitutes a very valuable multi-dimensional resource for informing the necessary policies in support of a green and just transition in the Mekong region. (Koen Duchateau, First Concellor, Head of Cooperation, Delegation of the European Union to Vietnam)

A just transition in South-East Asia implies considering social and environmental dynamics together. This collective work opens up a new field while at the same time testifying to the vitalityof research collaborations between France and the countries of the Mekong region. A reference for all development actors in the region (Hélène Djoufelkit, Director of the Economic Analysis and Public Policy Department, AFD)

The notion of « sustainable development » is complex because it implies, upstream, the development and dissemination of new interdisciplinary knowldege, co-constructed with society. This book is based on a rigorous analysis of existing knowledge and on several case studies that illustrate the complexity of the interdependencies between environmental change and social inequalities. In addition to its lessons, it highlights the dynamism of the collaborations between French research and development actors and their partneers in Southeast Asia (Philippe Charvis, IRD Deputy Director for Science)
