The central coastal province of Binh Dinh will invest nearly 38 billion VND (1.77 million USD) in 2015 to carry out the Natural Disaster Risk Management Project, according to Nguyen Huu Vui, Vice Director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Of the figure, nearly 30 billion VND (1.4 million USD) will be sourced from the World Bank and the remaining from corresponding provincial capital.

The project will cover embankment upgrades along the Kon River flowing across An Nhon town and Tuy Phuoc district, Ho Nui Mot reservoir repairs and the construction of an embankment in Nhon An commune and a dyke along the Ha Thanh River.

The project has created favourable conditions for districts in the province to repair eroded embankments which threaten production and livelihoods in the locality, said an agricultural official in Tuy Phuoc district.-VNA
