SEAs of the hydropower sector in Myanmar Resources page
Based on stakeholders' opinions, suggestions and suggestions, the SEA provides a deep appreciation of the importance of Myanmar's assets and its dependence on watercourses. SEA' s final drafts are now available for scrutiny and stakeholders' input. When finalised, the document will propose a balanced approach to hydroelectric power generation and the conservation of each of Myanmar's large catchment areas, thus helping to ensure the sound operation of these watercourses for the next millennium and beyond.
SEA' final report suggests that river catchment zones be zoned to enhance site selection, enhance the programming of sustainability hydroelectric projects, enhance environment and societal sustainability assessments and managerial plans, and obtain key basic hydro and river basin programming information. We have completed the stakeholders' appraisal procedure. In Myanmar's eight reservoirs, Ayeyarwady, Thanlwin, Mekong, Myit Mo Hka and Bago, Sittaung, Bilin, Tanintharyi and Rakhine, an ecological and societal analysis of the ecological and societal situation was conducted to give an overall view of the potential impacts of the mid- and large-scale hydroelectricity.
This nationwide analysis provides information on characteristics that make it possible to design the entire area of hydroelectric power, and GIS strata that give an overall view of the status of the area. At the beginning of the SEA, a stakeholders' involvement scheme was implemented to sketch out the consultative and communications activity, identifying the main stakeholders' groups and identifying the necessary inputs and duration for efficient involvement at each phase of the SEA.
The involvement of the stake holders took the form of consultative sessions, which included local involvement, as well as holding and holding seminars and discussions with groups from governments and civic groups, experts and counsel. You can find a card that illustrates the commitment of SEA stake holders here. RBBs have briefed interested parties on the SEA proces. In this synthesis of the results of the participative cartography and interest group analyses at the basins and the main ecological and societal questions and possibilities that have been identifyd by the interest groups are presented.
They were invited to debate the value and use of the stream and questions of its or the region's evolution. In order to record the state of the hydro power generation in each pool and sub-basin, a GIS databank with current and planned hydro power plants with an output of more than 10 MW was created. It contains the site of each and every one of the designs and a synopsis of the main design information, where available, including: property and design state, initial terms and specifications of the design.
Throughout the SEA lifecycle, our stake holders provided input on the SEA Baseline Reports and the SEA Final Report. SEA' s final report will shortly be available for scrutiny and input from interested parties. For the SEA Final Report design, the comments grid can be downloaded below.
