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.

Preliminary Evaluation of the Ecological Attributes of the Fish Fauna of the Vu Gia – Thu Bon River SystemICEM Environmental Management2020-01-10T15:22:12+07:00
Rapid economic development has seen Vietnam’s energy demand grow at a rate of 13-15% per annum over the last decade, leading to chronic and severe power shortages, and plans for extensive hydropower development. The Vu Gia – Thu Bon River Basin in central Vietnam will be one of the first areas to see increased hydropower development with 8 major and at least 34 minor hydro installations planned for completion over the next 10 years.

The Khone Falls fish pass study is the first of its kind in the Mekong region. For the most part, fish pass design has been based on studies conducted outside the Mekong region and with a focus on fish species not found in the Mekong River. The project aims to assess the swimming capabilities of migratory fish species in the Khone Falls to help design fish passes that are tailored to the needs and capabilities of Mekong fish species.
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.

About: The Mekong River Basin faces a grave threat from climate change. Communities and governments must work together to develop and promulgate adaptation strategies that preserve the lives and livelihoods of some 60 million people. ICEM is working with DAI and SEA START as part of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Mekong Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project to generate new data, new approaches and to spur adaptive change in the Mekong River Basin.

About: This significant study is the first of its kind for the Mekong River and will provide the foundation for understanding fish migration dynamics to inform realistic and sustainable design of fish passes for proposed hydropower dams. The objective of the project is to assess the hydro?geomorphologic requirements of fish migrations using the Khone Falls as a natural laboratory.
About: This SEA served as an initial technical assessment of the long-term sustainability of master planning in the forestry sector and also provided the framework for training MARD Department of Forestry staff in the use and implementation of SEA. The SEA undertook a rapid assessment of three Provincial Forest Protection and Development Plans (FPDPs), and provides guidance for the development of a National Forest Sector Master Plan and wider GoV decision-making in the forestry sector.

The national biodiversity strategy and action plans of 15 Asian countries are reviewed in this book, produced as part of an ICEM project with IUCN. The natural systems of South and South East Asia are in accelerating decline. Evidence from the 15 countries of the region covered in this book shows that all forms of biodiversity — ecosystems, species and genetic resources — are being lost at unprecedented rates. Rates of degradation in land, fresh water and marine habitats are a reflection of species loss.
