A two-day meeting of senior officials from the Mekong subregion began Friday with representatives from member countries in the Lower Mekong basin discussing concerns and recommendations on water resources development and management on the Mekong River, reported Thai News Agency.

A resolution from the meeting will be presented to leaders of member countries including Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam, who will gather at the two-day summit, set to start on Sunday.

The event, which is being held by the Mekong River Commission (MRC) to mark its 15th anniversary, is aimed at reaffirming commitment of the member countries and good relationships with dialogue partners, China and Myanmar. The two dialogue countries are observers during the meeting.

The MRC summit will discuss a range of challenges facing the Mekong basin today, particularly the long term of climate change.

The water level in the Mekong River has alarmingly dropped, the worst in 50 years, affecting local people, relying on water resources.
