Water is an increasingly scarce and contested resource around the world. There is a widespread agreement on the need to improve the management of water resources especially in river basin if the needs of current and future generations are to be met in a sustainable manner and the environment is to be protected. There is also general agreement about the need to develop a strategic plan.
Strategic planning for an organisation is a management tool used almost universally in developed or industrialised countries by public and private sector organisations. It is an ongoing process of setting goals and policies, plans for achieving those goals within a specified time frame, and measuring results through monitoring and reporting. The process is periodically repeated, incorporating the results from the monitoring process and any policy changes that might impact the organisation.In countries in SEA, the River Basin Management does not appear to be fully integrated and cross sectoral linked as it is needed to face the complexity of the current and future situations. This condition led to flood, drought, land slide, sedimentation, decreasing water quality, decreasing water quantity and other natural disasters. Challenges in implementing an integrated river basin management are difficult, especially in SEA, since a river basin may consist of several transboundaries, regencies or municipality. Based on its location, river basin could be classified into upper stream, middle and lower stream. And the performance of the river very much depends on the users or community activities in those locations.
