2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Mekong Agreement on Cooperation for the Sustainable Development of the Mekong River Basin. The report illustrates how the MRC has been helping its Member Countries co-manage and develop their shared water resources.
MRC Initiative for Sustainable Hydropower Final Report on ISH01 Pilot Testing in the Sre Pok Sub-Basin Study on the Identification of Ecologically Sensitive Sub-Basins for Sustainable Development of Hydropower on Tributaries
The study identified sub-basins with high ecologic value to be protected and those where hydropower can be developed with limited environmental impacts. It also provides a framework for sustainable hydropower planning and management in lower Mekong tributaries.
This report provides a guiding framework for transboundary monitoring of keys basin disciplines to assist hydropower decision-making and management.
The RSAT is a multi-stakeholder dialogue and assessment tool designed to assess hydropower development and management issues at a basin wide level. It was developed under the MRC's Initiative on Sustainable Hydropower Project.
This report looks at flash floods in particular their relation with tributary and mainstream floods. It makes a comparison between these and riverine floods and discusses their impacts on their incidence and severity, such as land use changes and climate change.
This report highlights the regional incidence of typhoons and tropical storms as well as their role in the flood hydrology of the Lower Mekong River Basin. It also presents an overview of the flood season over the year and a summary of the national flood reports from the MRC Member Countries.
The study aims to facilitate the long-term planning and policy- making in the crop production sector towards a food secured and poverty-alleviated future for the Lower Mekong River Basin in the face of climate change.
Irrigation for Food Security, Poverty Alleviation and Rural Development in the Lower Mekong River Basin
The report features food security and poverty implications of the current irrigation sector and planned irrigation developments with discussions on how to irrigate the remaining rain-fed areas.
This report provides an overview of the irrigation sector in the lower Mekong countries, including on the issues of environment and capacity of engineers and engineering communities, technical protocols in planning, design, construction management, operations and maintenance, and capacity development.
This document provides a summary of the Rapid Basin-wide Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Tool (RSAT). The RSAT is a multi-stakeholder dialogue and assessment tool designed to assess hydropower development and management issues at a basin wide level.
