The river management is a critical and more focused area where it faces heavy water feeds due to rains and high-sloped catchment. Pahang River is an example of such situation and it receives runoff due to 220 mm average monthly rainfall. Malaysia is going on fast track of development in infrastructure and focusing on transformation process of economy. Keeping in view this fact, the vulnerability may cause due to floods in Pahang River and itseems to be a threat for the sustainable development of this area. The study has main objective of to find out possible technology tools to fine tune the existing hydro management system with a priority of healthy growth of country with minimized threats of flood disasters. Learning lessons from Australia, which is already under the process to develop computer aided river management, used as a guideline for the implication of this system for Pahang River in Malaysia. The study has investigated the broader aspects of river management handled by the system of computer aided river management (CARM). These aspects discussed in scenario of future demands for the development of such system for Pahang River. Suggestions and possible ways of action for the implications of computer aided river management identified with key role of all stakeholders. The prospectus of CARM and its adaptation is in the benefit of the country because of its sustainability and future focused development fashion.
