Barrera Acero, Carlos
The purpose of this research is to assess the regional impact of China's water management initiatives in the Mekong River as contributing point to a positive perception for the asian giant. As a result of the applied reforms since 1978, China faced an exponential economic growth that some scholars call miraculous, but the process involved a negative impact on the environment and water of the state. Chinese environmental degradation involved, first, the development of internal measures with the purpose to reverse the effects described under various world forums on the environment and on the other, participation in sub-regional initiatives that show some degree pro- activity of asian giant on the environment.
