Vietnam Seeks Collaborations for Rainfall Collection and Purification Technology

Nov 2021

The Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE) is looking for international collaboration opportunities in the field of rainfall collection and purification technology in order to combat climate change in the Mekong Delta.

During the 12th Environmental Technology Experts’ Group Meeting organized by the United Nations Human Settlement Programme (UN-Habitat) in October 2021, the Director of ISPONRE said that Vietnam ranked sixth among economies globally severely affected by climate change and extreme weather conditions from 1999 to 2018.

Especially, the Mekong Delta, which is the country’s most important area for agriculture and fisheries production, is suffering from tremendous environmental damages, such as increasing sea levels, saltwater intrusion, drought, tropical storms, and severe tornadoes each year.

In this context, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has recently launched a project in the coastal areas of Mekong Delta to enhance resilience, develop new ecological residential areas through a small-scale infrastructure, in three remote areas of Tra Vinh and Bac Lieu provinces.

The project will provide three water purification and two rainwater collecting systems from 2021 to 2025. In addition, it includes funds for rebuilding 850 meters of dykes and planting around 1,000 square meters of mangrove forests.
