Improving the tool for monitoring and forecasting floods in the Mekong Delta


The Mekong River Commission recently updated its “Flood and Drought Monitoring and Forecasting” website. The upgraded version provides an immediate update as well as overview of the current status of the river condition, including flood forecasting, risk of flash floods, drought forecast, and rainfall distribution over the Lower Mekong River Basin. It is part of the effort from the Mekong River Commission to bring the vast amount of data and information about the Mekong River more timely and easily to the public and to help people living along the Mekong River to be well prepared to deal with climate change events.
