This Basin Development Strategy, in Part 1, sets out how water and related resources of the Mekong River Basin should be utilised, managed and conserved over the next 10 years from the perspectives of the Lower Mekong River Basin countries. Its main purpose is to guide all actors involved in Mekong water-related issues towards achieving improvements in the environmental, social and economic state of the Mekong River Basin.
Including in Part 2 of the strategy is the MRC Strategic Plan for 2021–2025, which is a unified corporate plan that is fully integrated with the BDS 2021–2030. The Strategic Plan sets out how the MRC will contribute to the implementation of the BDS and to strengthen the organisation over the next five years.
This is the third and last volume of the MRC’s Hydropower Mitigation Guidelines. This third volume discusses how promising mitigation options have been modelled and analysed for all mainstream dams.
This brief provides readers and decision-makers in the Mekong with key information about the MRC’s Joint Environmental Monitoring Programme (JEM) Pilots Project currently running at the first two Mekong mainstream dams in Lao PDR – the Xayaburi and Don Sahong dams.
This factsheet provides brief information about the MRC’s Joint Environmental Monitoring Programme (JEM) Pilots Project current running at the first two Mekong mainstream dams in Lao PDR – the Xayaburi and Don Sahong dams. It covers key facts you need to know about JEM.
The report presents a preliminary analysis of the hydro-meteorological conditions in the Lower Mekong River Basin (LMB) in January-July 2020 and identifies multiple possible causes of the low flows and drought in 2020.
The report was prepared to support the prior consultation process for the proposed Luang Prabang hydropower project. It provides a scientific review of the documentation submitted to the MRC by the Lao National Mekong Committee, covering hydrology and hydraulics, sediment and geomorphology, water quality and aquatic ecology, fish passage and fisheries, navigation, dam safety, and socio-economic aspects.
The report will replaces the Annual Mekong Flood Report to provide an annual summary on different hydrological subjects, ranging from flood, hydrology, and drought recognition to monitoring and early warning, remote sensing, modelling, and water management.
