Surface Water Resources Assessment of the Tonle Sap and Mekong Delta River Basin Groups: Improving Climate Resilience, Productivity, and Sustainability

Publication | March 2021

This brief discusses the state of surface water resources in the Tonle Sap and Mekong Delta river basin groups (RBGs) in Cambodia. It outlines climate risks and impacts to consider at the river basin level.

The Tonle Sap and Mekong Delta RBGs are crucial to the ecosystem and economy of Cambodia, especially in agriculture and fisheries. But the RBGs are susceptible to floods, typhoons, and droughts that can have a damaging impact on infrastructure and crops. The brief recommends integrating climate adaptation measures with investments and development and management plans for climate resilience and the sustainable use of water resources in the RBGs.
