Over 70 scientists and policymakers from Asian and African countries discussed ways to cope with climate change, ensure regional food security and natural resource management at a seminar in Ho Chi Minh City on September 21.

The four-day event is being jointly organised by the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD), the HCM City University of Technology, and the Vietnam National University – HCM City.

Vu Dinh Thanh, Rector of HCM City University of Technology said that the event aims to seek measures to improve human living environments in relation to areas such as protection of water resources, climate, environment, and erosion, in Asian and African countries.

At the event, the Vietnamese delegates reported on erosion of the coastline and river banks, environment depletion and problems in the Mekong Delta.

According to an UNCRD representative, as one of the countries most seriously threatened by climate change, Vietnam’s role and environmental issues will continue to be put on the agenda of future seminars, adding that Vietnam will also receive technical and financial assistance to cope with climate change in the near future.

As part of the event, a two-day fact-finding tour to the Mekong Delta will also be organised./.
