Promoting Comprehensive Utilization of Water Resources

After completion, a complete flood control system will form in the Ayeyawady River basin to increase flood control capacity of the basin and reduce loss to people's lives and properties and economic development due to frequent floods with flood predication, comprehensive management of the basin and joint reservoir dispatching.

Part of water flow from wet season can be adjusted and discharged in dry season through scientific dispatching and operation of cascade reservoirs, to enhance irrigation and navigation in middle and lower reaches and prevent saltwater intrusion.

The project will overall serve Myanmar in flood control dispatching, disaster prevention, damage reduction, and water ecological construction, and increase the capacity of disaster prevention, damage reduction, control and development, realizing comprehensive utilization of water resources in the Ayeyawady River basin.
