Can Tho calls for initiatives on climate change adaptation
The one-year project aims to research and implement climate change adaptation solutions for agricultural and rural development in the coastal areas of the Mekong Delta.
It plans to address issues such as salt water intrusion, coastal erosion, and a shortage of fresh water for business production and domestic use.
Top priority will be given to building saltwater resistant areas, changing crop timetables, and reinforcing sea bank systems to control seawater intrusion and reduce water loss.
The Government of Vietnam has approved a national target program on climate change adaptation in the Mekong Delta worth VND1,965 billion.
