This report summarizes the process starting from the background of the project, field data collection, and most importantly, the process of applying the Earth Observation technology via machine learning using the Google Earth Engine platform and the approach agreed by the expert group from the Member Countries to update the land cover and land use map of 2020 for the Lower Mekong Basin region.
Report on Experiences and Opportunities for Coordinated Operating Rules and Cooperation Arrangements on Dam Operations
(i.e. This Annual Mekong Flood Report 2015 discusses lessons learned
The report highlights beneficial opportunities for coordinated water
infrastructure operation mechanisms across the cooperation continuum – from coordination (information sharing) through collaboration (adaptation of operations) to joint action
(mutually advantageous planning, design and operations). It provides recommended actions and a forward plan to develop: “Coordinated water infrastructure operation mechanisms for multiple benefits, including gender and vulnerability-sensitive disaster mitigation and management”, as set out in the MRC Strategic Plan 2021–2025.
The ‘Guidelines to Prioritising Fish Passage Barriers’ provides a concise method to identify the highest priority barriers for installing fishways on irrigation facilities in a selected catchment. The method is based on physical, biological and socio-economic considerations, and uses remote sensing tools and analysis to assess and rank large numbers of barriers.
The Fishway Inspection Manual focuses on assessing design and requirements for maintenance of fishway as a complementary document of the Fishway Guidelines for Irrigation Facilities. The Manual is intended to be used for practitioners on-site with the Fishway Guidelines.
The Fishway Monitoring Manual focuses on assessing fish migration with method of fishway monitoring as a complementary document of the Fishway Guidelines for Irrigation Facilities. The Manual is intended to be used for practitioners on-site with the Fishway Guidelines.
