The central province of Nghe An is taking measures to build and upgrade its irrigation network to meet water demands for agricultural purposes, daily use and industrial production.

The province is now home to 624 reservoirs, 559 pump stations, 400 dams and 4,700 kilometres of irrigation canals.

Currently, Nghe An is calling for investment in key projects such as the Ban Mong reservoir, Nam Dan dyke, Vach Nam-Song Bung drainage system, pump stations in Vinh city, the Lam river and Hoang Mai river dykes and other flood drainage networks.

The projects will contribute to increasing agricultural productivity volume as well as poverty reduction and livelihood improvement.-VNA
