    and maintaining the health of the river system Watershed Management Project The Watershed Management Project WSMP aims to improve planning and coordination for the sustainable management of watershed resources at national and regional levels through relevant organisations in the Lower Mekong Basin LMB riparian countries The core issue of the WSMP is the sustainable management of upstream watersheds In addressing this issue the WSMP focuses less on technical aspects of watershed management and more on its institutional requirements because the efficient cooperation of all sectors involved and the participation of all relevant stakeholders are necessary preconditions for watershed management The project provides services in the following core areas Policy analysis and advice Support to national and local working groups introduction to and further development of methods and instruments for improved analysis planning and implementation of sustainable management of resources and support of a regional policy dialogue Information and Knowledge Management Documentation of experiences made in pilot watersheds in similar programmes undertaken by different development cooperation organisations and in riparian countries and specifically information exchange at the regional level through workshops meetings and Intra and Internet based information systems and Capacity Development Logistic and organisational support seminars workshops and training courses The project is active mostly at lower administrative levels district and provincial however it closely involves the national sector line agencies ministries National Mekong Committees Acting at this level is seen as complementary to and is coordinated with other activities of the Mekong River Commission MRC that target higher administrative levels national international Furthermore watershed management is increasingly undertaken in a more participatory and integrated manner focusing on multi stakeholder participation and linking social technical and policy concerns Activities The following projects are related to the Water Management Project Implementation of Watershed solutions project Up Scaling and Replication projects Establishing a self sustaining training network Consultation mechanisms for IWSM Strategy and portfolio development and Linkage to financial assistance from KfW German Development Bank to develop a model to ensure watershed functions of the Nam Ton Project area is secured and livelihoods are improved in a sustainable manner Key Achievements Below are some of key achievements of the Project since its inception Watershed policies and strategies have been developed watershed issues and activities discussed and evaluated in common and open forums data collected and analysed and resource inventories of the watersheds watershed profiles written A number of key products for institutional capacity building related to watershed management have been developed including a comprehensive Watershed Management WSM Resource Kit a manual for practitioners a watershed management training manual and knowledge management tools for Integrated WSM Watershed Plans of Action have been compiled for integration into the normal planning processes at district and province levels or for implementation using other sources of financing In 2009 watershed committees of pilot watersheds were supported in making these plans operational Watershed issues coming out of the watershed profiles were prioritised and earmarked for either implementation with external funds or integration into regular socio economic planning systems
