The Ayeyarwady State of the Basin Assessment (SOBA) is the first step towards the development of an integrated Ayeyarwady River Basin Master plan. SOBA is an integrated environmental, social and economic analysis of the past and present conditions in the Ayeyarwady basin that includes key processes that underpin the biophysical and socio-economic characteristics as well as a trend-based analysis of these characteristics.


SOBA aims to inform planning in the Ayeyarwady Basin by providing baseline information on the condition and trends in water and land resources as well as related ecosystem services and the livelihoods and economies of Myanmar that depend on these resource
