The transboundary Mekong Basin has been dubbed the “Battery of Southeast Asia” for its large hydropower potential. Development of hydropower dams in the six riparian countries proceeds without strategic analyses of dam impacts, e.g., reduced sediment delivery to the lower Mekong. This will impact some of the world’s largest freshwater fisheries and endangers the resilience of the delta An Pich Hatda, chief executive officer of the MRC secretariat, said in the MRC State of the Basin Report released on Tuesday that river management is still facing many ://

The Tonle Sap is a natural phenomenon. In the rainy season, the level of water in the Mekong River exceeds the elevation of the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and forces the Tonle Sap River to flow upstream.
The lake swells five-fold in Consumptive use of the Tonle Sap's natural capital is intense. The Tonle Sap Basin Strategy promotes an approach that conserves nature and offers the promise of sustainable :// Consumptive use of the Tonle Sap's natural capital is intense.
The Tonle Sap Basin Strategy promotes an approach that conserves nature and offers the promise of sustainable development. Informed by principles that fix attention to sustainable Tonle Sap Basin Strategy has been formulated in support of the Country Strategy and Program (–), and forms the basis for setting priorities and planning assistance in the Tonle Sap basin over the next 5–10 years.
In the Tonle Sap basin, the development objectives are to foster, promote, and facilitate /institutional-document//files/ The Tonle Sap Basin Strategy marks the introduction of basin-level strategic planning in Cambodia. The strategic planning process is iterative and provides regular opportunities for inputs in support of the Country Strategy and Program (–) and its annual updates; the Poverty Reduction Partnership Agreement entered into by the Government and ADB; the Rectangular Strategy of the The Asian Development Bank (ADB)'s Tonle Sap Basin Strategy has been formulated in support of the Country Strategy and Program (), and forms the basis for setting priorities and planning assistance in the Tonle Sap basin over the next :// Eight brochures were published between and on subjects including the Tonle Sap in ADB's country partnership strategy and program, the Tonle Sap Basin Strategy, the Tonle /_Future_Solutions_Now_-_The_Tonle_Sap_Initiative.

The lake is connected to the Mekong by the Tonle Sap River at Phnom Penh (see Figure ). Due to higher water levels in the Mekong during most of the wet season the Tonle Sap River flows toward the lake thereby enlarging it 3 to 6 times from 2, km2 to 9, km2.
In the dry season the flow direction is Tonle Sap Lake is one of the top four fishery production areas in the world. To further promote commerce, a large harbour is under construction at Chong Khneas.
Overfishing is a key issue, however: eight fish sanctuaries, which cover % of the Biosphere Reserve’s total area, aim to protect endangered and vulnerable fish /biosphere-reserves/asia-and-the-pacific/cambodia/tonle-sap.
Tonlé Sap (Khmer: ទន្លេសាប IPA: [tunleː saːp], literally large river (tonle); fresh, not salty (sap), commonly translated to 'great lake') is a seasonally inundated freshwater lake, the Tonlé Sap Lake and an attached river, the km (75 mi) long Tonlé Sap River, that connects the lake to the Mekong River.
They form the central part of a complex hydrological system, in The Tonle Sap, also known as the Great Lake in central Cambodia, is the heart of Cambodia's freshwater fisheries 1.
It is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and one of the richest inland fishing grounds in the world, with an estimated annual catch Fish broker Khout Phany, 39, (under umbrella) sits while fishermen bring their catch to be weighed in Chhnok Tru, a fishing village at the southern tip of the Tonle Sap lake where it meets the :// Snake hunting is a widespread activity throughout the Tonle Sap basin that emerged in the mid to late s (Stuart et al.
There are two predominant forms of snake hunting. The first is what we term the ‘snake fishery’ where an undistinguished mix of snake species are fished from the lake using gill nets and sold mainly to crocodile ?doi=&rep=rep1&type=pdf.
Tonle Sap Great Lake, or Boeng Tonle Sap in Cambodian terminology, is the largest and most important natural freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. It plays a critical role in Cambodian Khmer culture, in the economy of Cambodia, and in the ecology and hydrology of the Mekong River :// Abstract.
Livelihoods of people in the Tonle Sap Lake (TSL) area of Cambodia are complex combinations of rice-based cropping, fishery systems, mixed cash crops/home gardens, natural pond culture/aquaculture, cattle and livestock, collection of flooded forest products, and Southeast Asia's biggest lake is in serious trouble.
Drought, dam building and overfishing have brought the Tonle Sap to a tipping point. And as the lake goes, so The secret to the Tonle Sap Lake's amazing productivity is what's known as a monotonal flood pulsed system.
Normally, the Tonle Sap river flows into the Mekong river. But during the annual monsoon, the Mekong swells so much it pushes water back into the Tonle Sap river, and from there into Tonle Sap Lake, Eyler :// Cambodia encompasses a distinct physiographic region within the Mekong catchment referred to as the Tonle Sap Basin, beginning in southern Laos just above Pakse and spreading out into an extensive plain in central Cambodia, bordered on the east, north, and south-west by mountain ranges (MRC ).The dominant tributaries entering on the left bank are the Se Kong, Se San, and Sre Pok Rivers in Photo, Print, Drawing [Fishermen with fish trap on the Tonlé Sap in the basin of the lower Mekong River, Cambodia] [ b&w film copy neg.

The Mekong flows through a broad valley to the east of the Khorat Plateau and enters the Tonle Sap Basin just north of Pakse. The Tonle Sap Basin is a large alluvial plain surrounded by hills.
