Objectives

The overall objective of the Catch-Mekong project is to provide innovative research and technologies for a sustainable and transboundary management of the natural water and land resources in the Mekong Delta. Thereby, environmental impacts of upstream developments (land use, hydropower dams, sand mining) on the Mekong Delta are of particular focus.

More specificaly, the project focuses on the following objectives: 

  • Establishment of a profound data and information base for scientists, planners, and decision makers to help address development challenges
  • Filling knowledge gaps in the key themes water availability, saltwater intrusion, land use efficiency, river morphology, and coastal erosion.
  • Transfer of know-how and technology, through the development of innovative, hydrologic sensor technologies and measurement stations
  • Support planning and decision making progresses by increasing the capacity for data sharing and communication through novel, web-based information technology
