    This report focuses on the analysis of livelihood type-specific behaviors regarding household
    choices in land use and management practices. This is a contribution to the overarching
    framework of “Integrated Systems Analysis and Modeling in Aral Sea Region” activity within
    Dryland System CRP. The report is based on further analysis of baseline data collected within
    “Innovation Platform” activity, surveyed and reported in 2015 (Rudenko 2015). Preliminary
    analysis of household survey data including description of the study area and the content of

    The Yellow River Basin (YRB) Focal Project set out to study water poverty, water

    availability and access, water productivity, and water and related institutions in the

    Yellow River basin to develop and rank a series of high-priority interventions aimed at

    increasing water and food security for the poor, while maintaining environmental

    sustainability. The YBFP identified complex relations between water and poverty in the

    YRB; identified streamflow declines in the basin despite predicted higher rainfall;

    This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the

    series, to the Indus River basin in South Asia. The Indus Basin covers 3 countries, rises

    in the Tibetan plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar in China. Irrigated agriculture

    in the Basin is extensive with the construction of dams, barrages, and link canals to

    distribute water, with modern engineering to support irrigation starting as early as the

    mid 1800s.

    Net runoff is about 10% of total precipitation. Irrigated agriculture covers 20% of

    This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the series, to the Mekong River basin in Southeast Asia. The Mekong Basin covers six

    countries, the River rises in China, but there are substantial downstream tributaries

    from Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and from a small area in Myanmar. A

    unique feature is the reverse flow from the Mekong to the Tonle Sap via the Tonle Sap

    River at the height of the wet season flow and its ebb as the river levels fall.

    This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the

    series, to the Yellow River basin in China. The Yellow River rises in the Bayan Har

    Mountains in Qinghai Province in western China, and empties into the Bohai Sea. A

    unique feature of the river is the large amount of silt it carries.

    Net runoff is about 14% of total precipitation. Forest and woodland cover 9% of the

    basin and use about 15% of the precipitation. Grassland covers much of the upper part
