MRC promotional report on Identified Joint Projects for 2016 2020 1  

Promotional Report on Identified Joint Projects in the Lower Mekong Basin 2016-2020

Approved in 2017, this promotional report was developed based on the National Indicative Plans 2016-2020 of the four Member Countries and the MRC IWRM-based Basin Development Strategy 2016-2020. It describes five prioritised joint projects identified by the Member Countries. The joint project involves two or more countries to work together on key basin-wide challenges that one country cannot address alone. This report is used to promote the joint projects for funding and implementation support among development partners with experience of such projects.

Mekong sediment from the MRC Council Study Technical notedocx 1  

Mekong Sediment from the Mekong River Commission Study

This technical note presents the results of modelling changes in sediment loads in the Mekong basin by employing water resource modelling to support the impact assessment, which is part of the study. The results discussed here indicate that existing and proposed dams in the Mekong basin are expected cumulatively to have significant impacts on sediment loads entering the Mekong delta.

Water loss from LMB reservoirs Technical note 1  

Water loss from reservoir development in the Lower Mekong Basin

This short technical note describes the effect of reservoir development in the Lower Mekong Basin on water loss derived from evaporation and seepage. Findings translate that the water loss in Cambodia and Lao PDR increases in proportion to the number of proposed reservoirs in 2020 and 2040. Additionally, seepage is a dominant factor of the water loss as evaporation could be compensated by rainfall. Finally, the water loss is considered insignificant when comparing to inflow to the reservoirs.

THE COUNCIL STUDY

The Study on the Sustainable Development and Management of the Mekong River Basin, including Impacts by Mainstream Hydropower Projects

The ‘Council Study’ was conducted by the MRC from 2012 to 2017. It aims to provide an objective scientific assessment of the environmental, social and economic costs and benefits of existing and planned water resource developments in the Lower Mekong Basin to inform decision makers. The study results will be integrated into the MRC knowledge base to enhance the Basin Development Planning process. It helps promote capacity and ensure technology transfer to the Member Countries.
