MetadataShow full item record
This report is a deliverable of the project, IWRM, Institutional Building and Training, a collaborative effort by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) and the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA). An important aim of this project is to pilot test the river basin management approach in Myanmar, and the Bago River Sub-basin has been selected as a pilot case study area. This report presents an important input to a coordinated Sub-basin Management Plan by presenting environmental objectives and abatement measures as discussed in the Bago River Sub-basin Area Committee and in the Bago River Sub-basin Area Non-governmental stakeholder Group. In Chapter 2 we provide a brief description of international environmental policy objectives; in Chapter 3 , the Bago River Sub-basin is described with regard to the bio-geographic and socio-economic context and the main stakeholder groups are presented; in Chapter 4, Myanmar and Bago Sub-basin level environmental objectives and pressures are addressed; Chapter 5 presents current abatement measures in Bago Sub-basin for meeting environmental aims, and the last Chapter 6 presents the process of prioritizing among suggested measures.
