While the project is a global initiative, the project is developing and testing the methodology and tools within the context of three pilot basins. The project profits from the experience and knowledge of the basin stakeholders. The selected pilot basins are:
LAKE VICTORIA BASIN
The Lake Victoria Basin is prone to both floods and droughts. The umbrella institution in the catchment is theLake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC).
The Volta Basin represents a basin where there is irregular flooding and drought, in a drought prone region. The Volta Basin Authority (VBA) is the main basin institution.
CHAO PHRAYA BASIN
The Chao Phraya Basin is an exclusively national basin (Thailand). Floods are a regular feature in the Chao Phraya Basin contributing to significant economic losses, therefore investment in tools to manage floods (and droughts) is a priority.
