South East Asia's largest river, the Mekong, has withstood decades of pressure from rising numbers of humans, growing industrial activity and more demands for water and food. But scientists now caution that climate change could upset this balance in the coming years and decades. At risk are water, food and jobs for 65 million people living in Mekong River Basin. To minimize impact, the six Mekong countries need to better plan and coordinate how they share the river's resources and their impact on its flow. This film captures the highlights of a 2008 study, Vulnerability Assessment of Freshwater Resources to Environmental Change, carried out by researchers at the Asian Institute Technology (AIT) for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
