This book provides an in-depth analysis of groundwater uses and environmental issues in the Mekong Delta. It focuses on groundwater pollution and use, urban flooding, living with flood policy, and climate change-related adaptation measures. The Mekong Delta is facing these serious issues in the course of its development.

This book uses economic analysis methods such as risk cost benefit analysis, cost effectiveness analysis, contingent valuation method, economic loss valuation, and multi criteria analysis to provide policy makers and researchers a better understanding of issues faced by sea level rise-impacted regions around the world and provide possible solutions. Students of environmental economics, economic valuation, and public policy can use this work to enhance their analytical skills.
