China Taking Control of the Flow of the Most Important River in Southeast Asia

China is taking control of the flow of Southeast Asia’s most important river through a dam-building spree.

The Mekong river starts in China and flows through Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam. It feeds 60 million people through its basin and tributaries.

China’s Mekong dams could destroy fish stocks and China will manipulate water flows.

Thailand is having a severe drought.
