Water Resource Changes in Mainland Southeast Asia (SUSTech candidates only)


Please contact Professor Joseph Holden (Leeds) or Professor Junguo Liu (SUSTech) to discuss this project further informally.

Project description

The project aims to reveal the historical evolution in the past century and characteristics of water resources in mainland Southeast Asia (in particular the Lancang-Mekong River Basin), study natural and human induced water resource changes, and explore the use of water resources and their ecological and environmental effects in the context of global change. It will provide a scientific baseline for understanding how we can secure water resources in the future for mainland Southeast Asia and the “The Belt and Road Initiative” region.
