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.
The Annual Report covers the key achievements and progress of the Mekong River Commission for 2019, the fourth year of implementation of the MRC Strategic Plan (MRC SP) 2016-2020.
