The WB said Thursday that the aid will contribute to the institutional development of integrated water resources management in Vietnam’s part of the Sesan-Srepok Basin. It will help establish a Water Resources Monitoring Network in border areas with Cambodia and Laos in the Lower Mekong and a water resources information system for the Vietnam part of the Lower Mekong. The aid will also be spent on strengthening the hydro-meteorological information network, and flood forecasting and warning system in the Central Highlands.
