Cambodia is one of the south-east Asian countries that is rich in water resources. According to the latest preliminary study, the total hydropower potential of the country is estimated at 10,000 MW, of which 50% is in the Mekong mainstream, 40% in its tributaries and the remaining 10% in the south-western coastal area outside the Mekong River Basin. It is estimated that there are about 60 possible sites of small to large hydropower projects in the whole country.
