In order to more effectively service major international clients such as the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, and to assist in delivery of projects, we have recently open an office in Dehli.

Alluvium International

10.07.2017 - Posted by Kane Travis
Around 18 mths ago we decided to set up Alluvium International and see how our home grown Australian skills apply to the international market.  Happy to say that it has been a busy time and we have found there certainly is a need for our skills to help contribute to solving the complex water issues found in Asia and the Pacific. 
NCEconomics is a valuable partner in this venture as the social and economic aspects of water management are so important in the development context. Together we recently signed up to an exciting ecosystem services valuation project in Myanmar. 
Since beginning in March last year AI has been working in places such as Nepal, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos PDR and Tuvalu. We recently compiled a map of current and recent work - see here.
Our work in the international arena has helped drive us towards our vision of making the world a better place, and has been a great opportunity for our staff to travel and face the challenges presented by international work.

Data audit project in Myanmar

16.06.2017 - Posted by Simon Tilleard

Running 2,170 kilometres directly through the centre of Myanmar, the Ayeyarwady River forms the cultural and economic heart of the country.
In recognition of the importance of the Ayeyarwady River to Myanmar’s development, and the need to make a sustainable plan for utilising its resources, the Government of Myanmar has begun developing a Basin Master Plan.
The datasets needed for informed evidence-based basin planning for the Ayeyarwady Basin have historically been dispersed across a number of agencies, storied in various formats and of unknown quality. The Myanmar Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) and the Hydro-Informatics Centre (HIC) have therefore requested assistance in: i) undertaking a comprehensive review of available hydrometric and meteorological data in the basin; and ii) capacity building in quality control and database development. 
The Australian Water Partnership (AWP)-funded Activity 1 Hydrological data audit and capacity building in data management supported Alluvium, Hydronumerics and ALS Hydrographics to address this request through development of a consolidated and quality checked hydrological, meteorological, water quality and sediment database for the basin. The database forms the initial building block for development of a social, environmental and economic baseline for the Ayeyarwady Basin to inform development of the Basin Master Plan.
