Project description

MRC Member Countries have established Annual Mekong Flood Reports as a standard format with clearly defined target audiences, objectives and parameters/indicators to support the member countries. The AMFR is divided into an annual flood analysis and a special theme. The theme touches each year upon a different topic related to floods and droughts. For AMFR-2015 and AMFR-2016, the following themes have been defined: “10-year lessons learnt of annual flood experiences” and “Emerging technology to cope with flood” respectively.  It is considered an instrumental topic to adjust the structure of the AMFR, as Member Countries have expressed that Flash Floods are perceived equally important as River Floods.
