Water: Vital for Viet Nam's Future.
Asian Development Bank | November 2009
The Water Sector Review is a joint project of the Government of Viet Nam and its international development partners. The project's immediate objective is to review the state of the Viet Nam water sector and to establish a common framework to guide development decisions in the sector over the forthcoming 10 years. The project was funded by a number of development partners (the Royal Netherlands Embassy, Danida and AusAID), and led by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The implementation of the project is taking place under the Office of the National Water Resources Council (NWRC). The World Bank funded a review of the irrigation and drainage subsector as part of the overall water sector review. This brochure presents a summary of the state of Viet Nam's water resources within the context of rapid population and economic growth and structural change. It focuses on the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach to management, and the arrangements needed to start Viet Nam on this pathway. It outlines in brief some of the complex and related issues that need to be included in a reform programme to provide the basis for investments over the next 10 or more years.
