Cambodia Green Urban Development Program for GGGI

, , , , , , , , ,

In 2013, with the support of GGGI, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) approved a National Policy and Strategic Plan for Green Growth for the period 2013-2030. This plan aims to turn Cambodia into a green economy through the more effective use of natural resources, wider promotion of environmental sustainability, creating opportunities for green jobs and the adoption of green technologies, improving access to green finance and encouraging green investment.

Measuring, Understanding and Adapting to Nexus trade-offs in the 3S River Basins

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Sekong, Sesan and Sre Pok are transboundary tributaries of the Mekong River. The 3S basins, as they are collectively known, are richly endowed with natural resources and make an important contribution to national and regional development. However, there is a critical need to understand and respond to the risks inherent in the current "growth at all costs" paradigm. The purpose of the study is to improve the quality of planning and investment in the 3S region.

Second GMS Corridor Towns Development Project: Integrated Disaster Risk Management

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Many towns and cities in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) are facing increased vulnerability and exposure due to climate extremes combined with rapid and unplanned expansion of urban population and infrastructure. These towns are susceptible to flooding, drought, storms and other natural hazards, which are likely to become more frequent and more severe with climate change. This will negatively affect human settlements and economic activities in the region.

Viet Nam Urban Green Growth Action Project for GGGI

, , , , , , , , ,

About: Urban areas are recognised internationally as a critical component for realising green growth. Cities concentrate environmental issues from air and water pollution, solid waste and GHG emissions, and frequently face challenges posed by poor drainage, sanitation and flood control. Moreover, providing urban services and infrastructure offers opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of provision while increasing resilience and addressing social and economic development needs.

Lao PDR Climate Risk and Vulnerability Assessments for Rural Infrastructure

, , , , , ,

Lao PDR is among the least developed countries in the world and, according to IPPC findings, is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Because of the region's high poverty rates and low development progress, livelihoods that are already affected by the impacts of existing climate variability become highly sensitive to climate change.

Myanmar Healthy Rivers Initiative (MK23 and MK24)

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

About: The Salween River lies at the cross roads of Asia linking South and Southeast Asia with Tibetan Plateau and providing a home and well-being to more than 13 distinct ethnic groups and 10 million people. As Myanmar develops, the relationship between the river’s stakeholders and the underlying biophysical system changes. New stakeholders are emerging with new values and needs and are placing new demands and pressures on the river and the health of the system. In this context, efforts to understand the health of river ecosystems and the values which different stakeholders ascribe to the goods and services derived from the river system will help set a benchmark of how development decisions at the national, provincial and local level will impact on different user groups.

Using Strategic Environmental Assessment to Inform the Forestry Master Plan 2010 – 2020 of Vietnam

, , ,

ICEM conducted this strategic environmental assessment (SEA) with the MARD Directorate of Forestry and the World Bank within the framework of negotiations on a Public Investment Reform Development Policy Loan between the World Bank and the Government of Vietnam. The SEA offers a rapid assessment of three Provincial Forest Protection and Development Plans (FPDPs) and provides guidance for the development of the National Forestry Master Plan 2010–2020 and wider decision making in the forestry sector in Vietnam.

Mainstreaming Climate Resilience into Development Planning

, , , , , , , , , , ,

About: Action to tackle climate change in Cambodia is crucial. Cambodia will be a hotspot for climate change in the region. Average maximum daily temperatures in the wet season are projected to increase from between 1.7 to 5.3°C. Average dry season temperatures will also increase with a range of between 1.5 to 3.5°C. Trends in precipitation are also expected to change over the coming decades. Seasonal variability in rainfall patterns will grow, resulting in wetter wet seasons and drier dry seasons.

Biochar Assessment and Soil Mapping Study

, , , , , , , , ,

About: Biochar provides an innovative solution for GMS gender-responsive and climate-friendly agriculture. Biochar is the carbon rich product produced when biomass such as such as wood, manure or leaves, is heated with little or no available oxygen. It is added to soils to improve soil functions and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from biomass. Using biomass to produce biochar can release much less smoke that open burning by conventional practices that would otherwise naturally degrade to greenhouse gases.

Climate change impact assessment of the proposed Nam Ngiep 1 hydropower project

, , , , , , , ,

About: The Nam Ngiep 1 Hydropower Project is a hydropower generation facility planned for a location in Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) within the lower Nam Ngiep Catchment approximately 145 kilometres (km) northeast of Vientiane and approximately 50 km north of Pakxan. The Nam Ngiep is a tributary to the Mekong River, joining the Mekong immediately upstream of Pakxan. Primary components of the Project are a concrete gravity dam, storage reservoir, main power station and re-regulation power station, and power regulation and transmission facilities.

DELTA (DEveloping Long Term Adaptation) Tools for the Mekong Delta

, , , , , , , , , ,

About: The Mekong Basin with its complex monsoon climate is highly exposed to climate change. Average annual temperatures are expected to increase by 3-5°C by mid-century with average wet season precipitation increasing by 3-14% (USAID, 2013). For the floodplain areas of Cambodia and Viet Nam, increases in wet precipitation will be coupled with increased peak daily precipitation events and drier dry seasons, compounding water availability issues by making wet seasons wetter and dry seasons drier (USAID, 2013).

Study of the Impacts of Mainstream Hydropower on the Mekong Delta

, , , , , , , , ,

The Mekong Delta is affected by upstream development – often in ways not fully understood and with uncertain impacts on natural, social and economic systems which sustain life and well being for millions of people in Vietnam. With expanding plans for major developments on the mainstream and its tributaries, those impacts are likely to become much more serious. Vietnam and its riparian neighbours do not have adequate scientific understanding for informed decision making on Mekong mainstream hydropower projects, especially on their downstream effects.
