The aim of this Component of the MRC Fisheries Programme is to contribute to sustainable management and use of aquatic resources by strengthening reservoir fisheries co-management in the Mekong Basin. This will be achieved by developing improved river and reservoir management strategies, joint preparation of river and reservoir fisheries management plans by users and government agencies concerned and their implementation, and the strengthening of management capacity of all participating stakeholders. Major activities comprise the review of national fisheries management strategies, assessment of present and future river and reservoir fisheries potential, special studies on technical and institutional improvements in river and reservoir fisheries, participatory aquatic resource planning and management implementation, the training of resource users and Government staff in river and reservoir co-management and user community organization.
