Changes in river morphology including floods, erosion, and landslides are affecting ecosystem habitats and the lives and livelihoods of communities living along Myanmar’s rivers. SERVIR-Mekong is using satellite-based monitoring tools to support Myanmar agencies and communities to manage the risks better. Last year in Myanmar, floods resulted in 31 deaths and displaced over 300,000 people because official warnings came too late. To help prevent such crises, SERVIR-Mekong and the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) are developing a seasonal river morphological monitoring and warning system called Dancing Rivers to improve flood forecasting in Myanmar.
