  • 1. Kate Lazarus, CPWF Mekong
  • 2.
    • What?
  • 3.
    • In the Mekong, the CPWF looks ways to optimise the management, use and operation of dams and their reservoirs.
  • 4.
    • Why?
  • 5.
    • Between them, the GMS countries have a hydropower poten tial of 1,090,000 GWh.
    • As of 1999, just 20,500 GWh had been developed.
  • 6.  
  • 7.  
  • 8.  
  • 9. The aggregate demand for electricity in GMS is projected to rise from 108,850 GWh in 1995 to 600,000 GWh in 2020.
  • 10. Virtually every study of the impact of the dams on the Mekong System predicts substantial environmental and social costs as a consequence of their development. The single biggest change to water use and its management in the Mekong today and into the future is hydropower development.
  • 11. But these developments also open up opportunities - agricultural, economic, environmental and social.
  • 12. How?
  • 13. To explore this idea, we've developed six projects.
  • 14.
    • Optimizing reservoir management for livelihoods.
    • Water valuation.
    • Optimising the management of cascades or systems of reservoirs at catchment level.
    • Water governance at the basin scale.
    • Coordination and change.
    • Hydropower governance and the development of partnerships and knowledge-sharing.
  • 15. We’re looking for new partners, new ideas and new initiatives to help us achieve our vision
  • 16. Where?
  • 17. Our projects are scaled – they work at the dam, catchment and basin levels.
  • 18. We have chosen to work on one completed dam (Yali); one partially constructed dam (Nam Theun Hinboun Expansion); and one planned dam (Lower Sesan 2).
  • 19. While the bulk of our field work will be in Cambodia, Vietnam and Lao PDR, Project 4 focuses on the basin scale and Project 6 has a focus in China and Thailand as well.
  • 20. Cambodian partners
  • 21. MOUs with MOWRAM and pending with MOE. Agreements with MIME and SNEC. Project partners – numerous Government and Non-governmental organisations
