      In the world, river basins often interwoven into two or more states or prefectures and because of that, disputes over water are common. Nevertheless, not all shared river basins are associated with water conflicts. Rivers in Japan and Malaysia play a significant role in regional economic development. They also play a significant role as water sources for industrial, domestic, agricultural Cited by: 1. Hydropower is the favoured energy option for the Mekong's riparian countries. The development of the Mekong River Basin is highly controversial, and is one of the most prominent components in the discussion about the river and its management. This debate occurs in both the academic literature.

        The Water Framework Directive of the European Union requires that water management be carried out at the scale of a river basin, particularly when this involves transboundary management. It is very likely that this will result in a shift in responsibilities of the institutions involved and the establishment of new by: 2.   Abstract. At a global level, river basin development and management has shifted from a ‘hardware’-driven approach based around engineering river systems in the form of dams, diversions and other large structures, toward a ‘software’-driven approach under the broad rubrics of governance and integrated water resource by: 1.

      River basin planning programs in the developing nations have viewed river basins generally as hydrological systems, with a strong emphasis on constructing large dams to generate hydroelectricity. These programs have emphasized power production and have tended to overestimate the benefits of power generation and irrigation and underestimate. of the pilot basins in which the new approach is being developed and tested– the Olifants. Overview The Olifants Basin The Olifants River Basin is located in the northeastern corner of South Africa and southern Mozambique (Figure 1). The bulk of the basin lies in Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces, with a small portion in Gauteng Province.

This book distills best practice approaches to basin planning in large and complex basins and provides an overview of the emerging good practice.

Growing competition for scarce water resources has driven major changes in the way river basin planning is by:.

In Mozambique and the Limpopo River Basin, there is a need to establish agreements to share water resources with the neighbors and build the Mapai Dam on the Limpopo River for irrigation purposes, flood control, control of saltwater intrusion, and ensure minimum flows for ecological : Avelino I.

Mondlane.A river basin is a basic geographical and climatological unit within which the vagaries of natural processes act and manifest themselves at different spatio-temporal scales. Even if compared side-by-side, no two river basins respond to natural processes in the same way and thus, it has long been recognized that each river basin is unique.Floods are the most destructive, most frequent and most costly natural disasters on earth.

Damages continue to soar despite huge expenditures on flood control structures. Dams and levees can never be fail-proof, and when they fail, they do so spectacularly.

Climate change is expected to dramatically increase flood risk. "Soft-path" flood risk management seeks to respond to.
