E-Flows in the Nam Songkhram River Basin
The approach considers not only the importance of river flows from a physical or ecological perspective, but also relates to the socio-political side of the equation. The key to understanding E-Flows is the role that people play both as beneficiaries and at the same time, modifiers of the wider riverine ecosystem. As an “ecological water demand”, E-Flows should be regarded as a legitimate water use sector similar to the industrial or agricultural water use sectors.
