Event Name:  Building Lasting Capacity for Water Management in Lower Mekong using Satellite Observations
Event Description:  Low-lying deltas in Indochina are vulnerable to water resources availability due to dense population and extensive irrigation. Inhabitants of the deltas depend heavily on groundwater to supplement surface water stocks for irrigation and domestic use, especially during the dry season. Over-exploitation of groundwater has led to land subsidence, and hence increased the risk of flood magnified with coastal sea level rise. The vulnerability worsens due to uncoordinated human activity in the upstream regions, such as extraction, diversion and dam impoundment of river waters. This capacity building should address the unique and diverse needs and operating conditions of regional and national government stakeholder agencies in Indochina to enable integrated water resource management and flood/drought risk reduction. Such systems need to survive independently (i.e. ARL=9) within the existing environment of government agencies to give meaning to the SERVIR motto 'Space to Village'
