Climate Change Analysis in the Lower River Mekong Basin: Review of Availability of Observed Meteorological Data
Working Paper No.52
The paper aims to build knowledge on the current status and gaps of meteorological data in the Lower Mekong River Basin for supporting climate change adaptation planning at different levels.
Technical Paper No.42
This report presents detailed information of a baseline study of the social conditions and vulnerability that are linked to the changes of water related resources in the lower Mekong corridor in 2011.
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.
Technical Paper No.43
This report describes the biomonitoring survey conducted in 2011 in the Lower Mekong River Basin which contributes to the evaluation of the overall ecological health of the river.
