to develop a strategy and program to deal with the threat of future flood disasters in the Mekong River basin.

The MRC Strategy on Flood Management and Mitigation was published in (FMM Strategy) and outlined the role the MRC could play in the management of flood risk in the LMB (according to the mandate of the Agreement).

The Greater Mekong Subregion Flood and Drought Risk Management and Mitigation Project (the Project) will be implemented in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam.

The Project aims to improve the capacity of the countries and communities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from the negative impact of floods and droughts.

resources of the Mekong River Basin, such as navigation, flood control, fisheries, agriculture, hydropower and environmental protection.

MRC's work in these fields feeds into four core programmes (Basin Development Plan, Water Utilisation Programme, Environment Programme and Flood Management Mekong Flood Management and Mitigation Programme book Mitigation Programme).

River discharge in the Mekong River Basin (MRB) and flood inundation in the LMB were simulated by a coupled rainfallrunoff and inundation (RRI) model. Results indicated that 90day precipitation counting backward from the day of peak flooding had the highest correlation with peak discharge (R ) and inundation volume (R ).

Insufficient flood and drought monitoring and mitigation undermine food security and upset stability in the region. As a result, the Lower Mekong River basin remains prone to severe annual floods that continue to cause widespread damage to unprepared communities and endanger food security and the livelihood of the millions who dwell in the region.

The UN Development Programme (UNDP) supported the negotiation of the Mekong Agreement. 10 A year before the MRC was born, with the anticipation that the new body would take the work further, Frances Compagnie Nationale du Rhône (CNR) led a study for the Interim Mekong Committee called the Mekong Mainstream Run of River.

The first phase of Environment Waikatos flood management strategy was to undertake a flood hazard analysis for the Waikato Region. The Flood Hazard Analysis1 identifies areas that are prone to flooding and those areas with significant assets at risk from flood waters. The Flood Risk Mitigation.

In response to climatic shifts, the programme called "Post-doctoral Research programme on Adaptation to Climate Change (PRoACC) in the Mekong River Basin" was initiated with its main objective to.

The Regional Flood Management and Mitigation Center (RFMMC) affiliated with the MRC was founded in after a series of severe floods from to It currently issues an up to 5-day lead time of daily water level forecasting at each of 22 locations from Chiang Saen to Tan ChauChau Doc during the wet season which is from June to October.

An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) took these photographs of the Mekong River along the border between Thailand and Laos, in an area about 60 kilometers (40 miles) northeast of Vientiane.

Southeast Asias largest river winds as a red-brown channel of flood water, the result of very heavy monsoon rainfall that affected populations from North Vietnam through Thailand. The Mekong River Commission (MRC) has been established for the sustainable development of the Mekong River Basin to broaden the scope of cooperation in all fields of basin development and resource management, river navigation, flood control, fisheries, agriculture, power, production and environmental protection to prevent and turn the potential.

The Mekong river is one of the most complex river systems in the world that is shared by six nations in Southeast Asia. The river still remains relatively undammed (most existing dams are in the tributaries and are small), and its hydrology today is dominated by large natural flow variations that support the highly productive agricultural and riverine ecological systems; however, this is.

Over representatives of organisations with an interest in hydropower development in the Lower Mekong Basin gathered in Vientiane in September for the Regional Multi- Stakeholder Consultation on the MRC Hydropower Programme.

Parts of Luang Prabang were inundated by floodwater that saw Lao PDR and Thailand incur damage costs of US million (MRC, 1). The Regional Flood Management and Mitigation Programme (RFMMP) which is based in Phnom Penh, predicts the scale and trend of flood cycles from Yunnan Province in China, right down to the delta in Vietnam.

The book draws heavily on information provided by Parties to the UNFCCC, particularly that provided at three regional workshops held in Africa, Asia and Latin America and one expert meeting held in small island developing States during 1, as mandated by the Buenos Aires programme of work on adaptation and response.

In environmental engineering, the flood mitigation involves the management and control of flood water movement, such as redirecting flood run-off through the use of floodwalls and flood gates, rather than trying to prevent floods also involves the management of people, through measures such as evacuation and drywet proofing properties.

Water and Urban Development Paradigms. : Communication across and integration of disciplines in the urban-water sector seems today more imperative than ever before. Water is a strategic and shrinking resource.

It is probably the world's most valuable resource and clean water has even been touted as the 'next oil'. Figure Mekong River discharge data measured at the Pakse (Lao PDR) hydrographic station from June to November in - Figure Pakse: Average Mekong flood volume in August and September from to Between and the mean flow decreased by 12.

This chapter provides an analysis of various resilience definitions and depicts the differences in definition between engineering, ecological and socio-ecological resilience in an easy-to-understand graphic representation.

Based on this, the book is a valuable source of the state of the art in flood risk management but also covers future demands for research and practice in terms of flood issues. Mekong River is one of the major international freshwater sources in the world.

Methodology Below. While renewable energy is often regarded as an important element in climate change mitigation measures, its vulnerability to climate impacts itself seems to have received less attention. The effects of climate change in Southeast Asia have been observed, among others, in the rise of heavy precipitation events in the Mekong River Basin region.

Lower Mekong countries suffer from the effects of seasonal flooding and flash flooding caused by monsoon rains and tropical storms.

Regional and national level organizations and agencies require a range of information, forecasts, and decision-support tools to better prepare for, monitor, issue warnings, and respond to flood risk.
