[Excerpt] The Government of Cambodia is looking at basin-wide management of the Tonle Sap.1,2 By means of extensive investigations, it has nurtured agreement in principle on organizational form and function to better drive, coordinate, and streamline infrastructure development and natural resource management to benefit all. Since the structure being formulated preserves connection to Cambodia's involvement in efforts to manage the Mekong River Basin, the steps now being taken can inform other basin-wide approaches. They can also be informed by steps taken elsewhere vis-à-vis basin management financing.
