MRC DSF / Toolbox: Application in LMB


MRC Toolbox used as main tool for various study within MRC and outside, for example:

  • Impacts of Scoping Development Scenarios in the Lower Mekong Basin (BDP, MRC)
  • Impacts of Climate Change Scenarios in the Lower Mekong Basin (CCAI, MRC)
  • Impact of Chinese Dam to Lower Mekong Basin (MT, MRC)
  • Impact of Flood and Salinity Intrusion in Mekong Delta (MT, MRC)
  • Flow contribution for entire basin (MT, MRC).
  • Study on the changing of Flow regime in Mekong mainstream year 2010 (MT, MRC)
  • Study on the changing of Flow regime in Mekong mainstream year 2010 (MT, MRC)
  • Study on Erosion and Sedimentation of LMB (MT, MRC)
  • 3S River Basin Development Study - Application of MRC Modelling Tools (MRC and ADB).
  • Ongoing : study Impact of Flow and Sediment for Xayaburi HP Dam project in process of PNPCA (MRC)
