4Ps rivers : Cambodia’s Water Law supports strategic investments in developing water resources, and promotes transparent, accountable and participatory water management

The 4Ps River basin consists of four sub-basins of the Mekong River — the Prek Preah, Prek Krieng, Prek Kampi and Prek Te. Located in eastern Cambodia, the basin is still mostly covered by forests. About 1% of the area is cultivated, and a quarter of this is irrigated. Poverty is still widespread and local people are vulnerable to floods and drought.

 

In 2007, a Functional Water Partnership — a network of focal points for dialogue on integrated water management — was formed in the four sub-basins. The dialogue focused on economic development and poverty alleviation, environmental protection, social development, flood and drought management, integration through basin planning, and water resources information management. The Cambodia Water Partnership (CamboWP) and the 4Ps Basin Functional Water Partnership have been established as a result of this project.
