Rivers for life and livelihoods: classification of river health in the Salween River

Understanding river health requires monitoring of spatio-temporal trends in the river’s ecological condition and its capacity to continue to provide users with the goods and services they value. MK23 will draw on its partner’s Mekong and global experience with River Health Frameworks (RHFs) to tailor a framework suitable for the Myanmar context, where conventional river monitoring is rarely available and government and community stakeholders need to draw on alternatives.HealthRiversComp
