CCOP-KIGAM-UNESCO-MME Workshop on Transboundary aquifer-surface water management in Mekong basin


The CCOP-KIGAM-UNESCO-MME Workshop “Transboundary aquifer-surface water management in Mekong basin” was held in Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh, Cambodia,25-26 July 2017.The workshop forms part of the activities programmed in the CCOP-KIGAM project “Groundwater-Surface Water Interaction and Comparative Study of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems in the Mekong Basin: Application to Transboundary Aquifer Management”. The objectives of the workshop are to promote the sharing of information and best practices among Mekong countries in transboundary aquifer management. The key players of each country in the Mekong River Basin are invited to address major issues and status of the groundwater management. Strategy to enhance collaboration to adapt to future challenges between neighboring countries is also discussed. A total of 22 participants from CCOP Member Countries (represented by Cambodia, Republic of Korea, Lao PDR, Thailand, Vietnam), UNESCO Bangkok and CCOPTS attended the workshop.

During the first day of the workshop 9 oral presentations were delivered. CCOPTS had delivered on “CCOP role in promoting groundwater and other geoscience activities in East & Southeast Asia”. The day ended with discussion on the installation of the monitoring well/s. In the second day, a field work was carried out to the Lerk Daek District, by the Mekong River, 68 km southeast of Phnom Penh. A shallow groundwater well about 3.8m depth was successfully augered and installed. The augering equipment was freshly brought from Korea, especially for the purpose.
