15. WAPCOS Project:

After learning out about the apparently already well-advanced WAPCOS project only during the ICC-Angkor session of January 24, 2017, the ICC:

15.1. Recommends that, prior to any implementation work, the full technical documentation relating to that project be submitted to the advisement of the appropriate APSARA National Authority departments, given the risk that putting in a dam upstream could have of undermining the entire historical hydrological system of the Angkor site that has been undergoing rehabilitation for years now.

15.2. Recommends that the opinion of APSARA’s water management depart¬ments be submitted at the next ICC technical session in June 2017.
