"Greater Mekong countries have affirmed that healthy economic growth goes hand in hand with healthy and productive ecosystems," added Dr. Blate. "By investing in biodiversity conservation and the maintenance of natural capital, the Greater Mekong Subregion can expand options for economic growth and ensure long-term sustainability in the face of global environmental change, including climate change."

Geoff Blate, the WWF's climate change coordinator for the Greater Mekong programme, said that recent studies show the climate of the Greater Mekong region is already changing.
Moreover, rising seas and salt water intrusion will cause major coastal effects on the Mekong River delta, which is one of the three most vulnerable deltas in the world. An average rise in temperature in the region of two to four degrees Celsius would lead to the extinction of 133 to 2,835 species, he said.
"We have many cooperation agreements on the economy and energy, but none for the crucial issue of climate change," said Mr Blate.
