Abstract

River basins provide the geographical working unit for natural resources managers, hydrologists and water managers as their boundaries obtain all the fresh water, which is potentially available in a region. The LUCCi research group dealing with river basin management has therefore systematically compiled and analysed the available information to give an overview on biophysical, institutional and socio-economic characteristics of the study region for stakeholders and researchers, and provides detailed information on the data sources and a state of the art on concluded studies in the study region with references. Here, we present a summary of the Vu Gia Thu Bon (VGTB) basin description. Further information is provided at www.basin-info.net and the Vu Gia Thu Bon River Basin Information Centre.
