Greater Mekong Subregion Environmental Performance Assessment 2006-2016

This report examines the environmental situation in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) based on a 10-year environmental performance assessment.

The assessment was conducted by the GMS Environment Operations Center, using the driver–pressure–state–impact–response model to examine the consequences of rapid economic development in the subregion, identify the major natural resource and environmental issues, and determine the effectiveness of responses by the GMS member countries. During the assessment period, the GMS Core Environment Program supported country efforts to address the subregion’s natural resources and environmental management challenges with its goal of creating an “environmentally friendly and climate-resilient GMS Economic Cooperation Program.”
