The final rechnical report will cover the following topics:

  • Meteorological condition
  • Hydrology and sedimentation
  • Characteristics of floods
  • Water resources and water environment
  • Vegetation development and soil erosion
  • River channel
  • Bio-community
  • Analysis on ecological stresses induced by human activities
  • Integrated river basin management stragegy
