Vietnam-Germany cooperate in managing water resources

QĐND – Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 20:39 (GMT+7)

A seminar on managing water resources in Vietnam and Germany was held in Hanoi on October 27.

The event, part of German Year in Vietnam 2010, aimed to protect water resources, keep up people’s health and maintain a clean ecosystem.

At the event, representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the German Water Partnership (GWP) signed a cooperative document about managing water resources.

Following recent statistics, more than 60 percent of the total water resources through out Vietnamese territory originates from foreign land. In Vietnam, water resources are allocated unequally during dry and rainy seasons.

On average, there has been 3840 cu.m of water per person per year. Water resources are also affected by climate change, and industrial waste. As a result, in the future, Vietnam may face water scarcity. Controlling water resources is an important goal to ensure sustainable development in the country.

The seminar was also a good chance to seek foreign partners to support action plans for managing water resources.
