In this article, we introduce the MRC water diplomacy framework and provide an overview of its governance structure, present three case studies of hydropower dam projects illustrating implementation of the MRC water diplomacy framework, and discuss the challenges affecting the MRC’s ability to implement water diplomacy effectively. The insights gained from studying these water diplomacy in the Mekong aspects allow for a better understanding of the situations of water diplomacy in the Mekong Basin and what steps need to be taken to strengthen the cooperation of member countries in optimising the benefits of the Mekong.
