Summary In this paper it is argued that increased demands for water use in the Mekong River Basin makes this region vulnerable to conflict. Strategies to both prevent and manage conflict are necessary for sustainable water use in this region. Community development is integral to sustainable development. Community development strategies are particularly useful in recognising knowledge and expertise within local communities. They also assist in involving local communities - particularly members of minority groups in collaborative efforts for sustainable natural resource use and conflict management. It is essential that local communities are active partners in the development of conflict resolution and sustainable development strategies. Active and meaningful participation of local communities in the planning, and management of local water use development activities will increase the likelihood of sustainable outcomes.
