Lower Mekong Initiative Environment and Water Pillar Training Program

, , , , ,

Held in Bangkok on 24-27 May 2016, the ‘SEA process, tools and lessons from the lower Mekong region energy sector’ workshop was organized by PACT Thailand as part of its Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI) Environment and Water Pillar Training Program (PTP). The workshop had two objectives:

Preliminary Evaluation of the Ecological Attributes of the Fish Fauna of the Vu Gia – Thu Bon River System

,

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.

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.

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.
