Kenya is prioritizing the construction of reservoirs in order to reverse water scarcity, officials said on Wednesday.

Built atop the bones of the dead, Trapaing Thmar reservoir is largest irrigation project built by the Khmer Rouge regime.

Water level in 91 major reservoirs of the country that account for nearly 63% storage capacity in the country is above 10 year average.

And they are exacerbated by bad management, says Simon Long

Making approvals for tree cutting more stringent, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, in his fifth Budget speech, said that for any project, permission to cut trees will be granted only to 20% of the total p

This review covers the performance of Hydro-Electric (HE) Stations having installed capacity of more than 25 MW. As on 31st March, 2018 there were 712 HE generating units installed in 206 Hydro-Electric Stations with an aggregate installed capacity of 45293.42 MW in operation.

This study by Vasudha Foundation has created a comprehensive mapping of all existing and proposed coal fired power plants on water related parameters. It monitors the generation of coal based thermal power plants in river basins, that are affected by water scarcity and reviews how the power generation is impacted due to this.

Maintaining and restoring connectivity between source populations is essential for the long term viability of wide-ranging species, many of which occur in landscapes that are under pressure to meet increasing infrastructure needs. Identifying barriers in corridors can help inform conservation and infrastructure development agencies so that development objectives can be achieved without compromising conservation goals.

This study analyses the August 2018 Kerala floods by examining earlier floods in the region, rainfall data before and during the disaster, and both the reservoir operations and runoff computations of various reservoirs in Kerala.

Reservoir sedimentation has been a pertinent issue for diversion structures for a very long time. Sedimentation of reservoirs pose problems like loss of live storage, erosion and turbine coating, frequent shutdown of power due to maintenance of hydraulic machinery etc.
