This assessment covers analysis of the impact of climate change on Hydropower Potential in the Lower Mekong River Basin (LMB). The study provides relevant indicators of change in potential hydropower generation for the LMB.
MRC Technical Paper No.64
The SIMVA report is the largest socio-economic survey and study conducted along the Mekong mainstream and floodplain areas to understand the occurrence and impacts from floods, droughts and extreme weather, and identification of longer-term trends at community level.
The report provides the status of water quality in the Mekong River in 2016, assesses water quality monitoring data monitored by the Water Quality Monitoring Network laboratories, and provides recommendations for future monitoring.
Lee Trap Fishery Monitoring in Southern Laos Reveals Fishery Resources Degradation from 2008 to 2013
This management series report presents findings from the Lee Trap Fishery Monitoring Programme in southern Lao PDR between 2008 and 2013. It concludes that fishery resources in southern Lao PDR is degraded in some extent and calls for more research and deeper analysis.
The report provides the status of water quality in the Mekong River in 2015, assesses water quality monitoring data monitored by the Water Quality Monitoring Network laboratories, and provides recommendations for future monitoring.
This Report focuses on indicators identified in the MRC Strategic Plan’s M&E system, and is divided into three major sections: outcome reporting, which showcases some “evidence of change” in each of the Strategic Plan’s 7 Outcomes; progress reporting, which briefly describes the status of progress in completing each output indicator; and Financial Reporting for the year.
The report describes five prioritised joint projects identified by the Member Countries. The joint projects involve two or more countries to work together on key basin-wide challenges that one country cannot address alone.
This technical note presents the results of modelling changes in sediment loads in the Mekong River Basin by employing water resource modelling to support assessment of proposed dams on sediment loads entering the Mekong delta.
This technical note describes the effect of reservoir development in the Lower Mekong River Basin on water loss derived from evaporation and seepage. It finds that the water loss in Cambodia and Lao PDR increases in proportion to the number of proposed reservoirs in 2020 and 2040.
Transboundary Water Resources Management Issues in the Sesan and Srepok River Basins of Cambodia and Viet Nam
The report describes priority issues for the management of water resources in the Sesan and Srepok River Basins along the borders of Cambodia and Viet Nam. Issues identified include insufficient monitoring and assessment of water flow, lack of flood forecasting and warning mechanisms, and limited mitigation measures to address the impacts of hydro-infrastructural development.
