The CCOP-GSJ-MME Groundwater Project Phase III Meeting was held on 5-7 March 2018, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It was attended by 24 participants from Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Thailand, and the CCOP Technical Secretariat. Representatives from Safe Water Supply Team Cambodia and UNESCO-Bangkok were also presented. In the meeting, participants confirmed progress of the project from March 2017 to March 2018, and discussed work plan for 2018 by three group discussions.
Each CCOP Member Country made a country presentation on the topic,“Explanation documents for the country’s capital city or representative area” (DB1& DB2) and “Public policy for Groundwater observation system ” (Public Policy Group). Since the current groundwater problem varies from one CCOP member country to another because of various hydrogeological and geographical settings, each Member Country should share the information for efficient hydrogeological map in the CCOP regions.
This publication is the compiled country reports presented in the CCOP-GSJ-MME Groundwater Phase III Meeting. The Member Countries will produce a technical report on CCOP Groundwater Project Phase III (GW-9) by the end of the project in 2019. The reports of GW-8 will be the backbone for the technical report and will serve as an outcome of the GW Phase III Project. This may faciltate having some solutions not only on groundwater management but also energy problem in the CCOP member countries. The report is of 90 colored pages, and is available in printed and digital formats. Its pdf file is around 4MB filesize, and can be downloaded from this link, http://ccop.asia/pdf/publication/GW-8.pdf
