Cooperation with Vietnam

We are cooperating with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and VASI, Vietnam’s water management authority, in a source-to-sea project in the river system that opens to the sea via the cultural city of Hoi An.

The project began a few years ago through a number of studies on environmental problems in the rivers and coastal areas between Hoi An and coastal town Da Nang. The project aims to minimize the impact of climatic effects, uncontrolled hydroelectric development, illegal sand extraction from the river bottom, and the rapid increase of tourism in the coastal area.
