Several government agencies and economic sectors (i.e., industrial, agricultural, tourist, domestic) have been involved in the development and management of water resources in the Houay Champi sub-basin, with each having a separate and distinct development plan and management mechanism. The mechanism to harmonize development across the sectors in the sub-basin area was weak, resulting in conflicting plans and uses among the different sectors.
