The Belgian Government is providing 8 million of the 9.5 million EUR that will be used in a project on water source management and urban development that kicked off in the southern central province of Ninh Thuan on November 5.

The project will last until November 2019, with the aim to increase the province’s capacity and mechanisms for the work in a changing climate.

It will establish a comprehensive strategy on climate change based on hydrographical studies and models at the Dinh River basin and Dam Nai area, and a climate change-adaption strategy at the provincial level with the active participation of the community and private sector, contributing to the province’s sustainable development.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Xuan Hoa said that the support of the Belgian Government is essential as Ninh Thuan is one of the provinces most vulnerable to climate change.-VNA
