    Planning Approaches for Water Resources Development in the Lower Mekong Basin 1 Executive Summary Governments in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) face decisions that involve trade-offs between, for example, the economic benefits from hydropower generation and potentially irreversible.   Governments in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) face decisions that involve trade-offs between the economic benefits from hydropower generation and potentially irreversible negative impacts on the ecosystems that provide livelihoods and food security to the rural poor. As a means of comparing these trade-offs, a sensitivity analysis of the benefit-cost analysis of certain Basin Development Plan.

    The Congo has far fewer dams than the Amazon or Mekong (see the chart), yet most power generated within the basin is from hydropower. Inga Falls, a km stretch of the lower Congo that drops 96 m to near sea level, has greater hydropower potential than anywhere else ().The Inga I and II dams, constructed in the s and s, currently yield 40% of the MW installed capacity (). Benefit sharing is a concept associated with regional cooperation for sustainable water resources management. To this end, the present study analyses how implementation of this concept may contribute to economic growth and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB).

      Energy demand for the Lower Mekong Basin is projected to grow 6 to 7 percent annually, and hydropower has long been a cornerstone of these four nations’ development plans. Framework for planned economic development of Lower Mekong Basin countries.

ECONOMIC COMPARISON OF ALTERNATIVE POWER RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT PLANS IN THE LOWER MEKONG BASIN I. INTRODUCTION Statement Of The Problem Development of power resources is one of the major factors in the comprehensive planning of multi -purpose river basin systems.

This is especially true in developing countries where the water re. Given the decision to invest in power development, an economic evaluation is made of complete system developments rather than just hydro or thermal plants. The power resources considered will adequately serve the Mekong countries from to Author: Pala Sookawesh.

Graduation date: In this thesis a system analysis compares power development\ud plans for the decade in the Mekong countries i.e. Laos, Thailand\ud Cambodia, and South Vietnam. Given the decision to invest in power\ud development, an economic evaluation is made of complete system\ud developments rather than just hydro or thermal plants.

Basin Development Plan Programme. The MRC’s Basin Development Plan (BDP) Programme complemented national planning processes and aimed to ensure that the use of the basin’s water and related resources contributes to sustainable economic development, with poverty alleviation as a primary goal.

Understanding basin development planning begins with the environmental, social and economic. On 5 AprilCambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Viet Nam decided to cooperate for the sustainable development of water and related resources in the Lower Mekong basin.

An inter-governmental body was created for this purpose: the Mekong River Commission. It is assessed that the current national water resources development plans are sub-optimal from a basin-wide perspective.

These plans fall short in protecting key environmental assets and protecting millions of increasingly affluent people against major floods. Finally, the distribution of the benefits, impacts and risks from planned basin development may not be viewed as equitably distributed. A Basin-Wide Development Strategy.

Benefit sharing is a concept associated with regional cooperation for sustainable water resources management. To this end, the present study analyses how implementation of this concept may contribute to economic growth and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB).

It focuses on the balance between economic and human development, national interests, and the procedures used to manage water resources. The governments of the basin countries are increasingly recognising that sustainable development of the economic potential of the Mekong river system - for domestic use, fisheries, hydropower, navigation, irrigation, and flood management - can alleviate poverty and improve livelihoods.

Abstract Development of the water resources of the Mekong Basin is the subject of intense debate both within the Mekong region and internationally. Water resources. An increase in power demand, volatile prices in international energy markets and concerns over carbon emissions have intensified interest in hydropower development – the Mekong’s indigenous renewable energy resource.
