Research 4 All podcast: Dealing with various aspects of water insecurity in research in the Mekong Region

The second episode of our "Research 4 All" podcast series discusses why SUMERNET focuses on water "insecurity” rather than water security, and the challenges for researchers studying different aspects of water insecurity such as access, rights, gender, conflicts over water infrastructure as well as water politics at larger scales.

Reducing water insecurity in the Mekong Region is SUMERNET’s focus on the ongoing phase – SUMERNET For All. But why should we talk about water insecurity rather than water security?

This podcast hosts Dr. Louis Lebel from Chiang Mai University, who is the SUMERNET Advisor on Water Insecurity. 

In this episode, Dr. Louis Lebel talks about how “water insecurity” can be a challenge to researchers who need to go out of their comfort zones and study issues that are often overlooked such as access, rights, gender, conflicts over water infrastructure as well as water politics at the larger scale.

SUMERNET podcasts highlight different aspects of our work on research, policy engagement, capacity building and communications in the Mekong Region.
