This project focusses on the challenge of repurposing large-scale hydraulic infrastructures to serve climate objectives, and aims to advance understanding of changing entanglements of rivers, infrastructure, and power relations in a time of climate change. It expects to contribute novel insights into water and climate change governance within and beyond the Mekong Region. Bridging political-ecology and infrastructure studies, planned outcomes include conceptual innovations that advance critical studies on river engineering. The project should benefit policy-makers, practitioners and advocacy groups in the Mekong and in Australia seeking to improve interventions and strengthen the coping strategies of vulnerable riverine communities.
