The Belgian Government’s official development assistance (ODA) will help the central province of Ninh Thuan to enhance capacity in the management and operation of its irrigational system as part of efforts to respond to climate change under a project launched on March 8.
At the event, Luu Xuan Vinh, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, stressed that improving management and operation capacity of the local irrigational system is significant to the locality’s urban area development in the context of climate change.

Local authority hoped to receive support from Belgium’s Technical Support Unit (TSU) and relevant consultancy organisations so that it can operate the system smoothly, he said.

Participants discussed measures to evaluate water resources and demand in the locality, seek way to optimise reservoirs as well as improve management of the irrigational system.

Under the project, relevant sides will work to assess planning of the water resource in the basin of the Dinh river, install 15 automatic water monitoring stations at prioritised reservoirs, arrange and handle climate change information and develop hydrographic models.

The project is part of the Belgium-funded “Capacity Strengthening for River Basin Management through Participatory Irrigation Management Development in the context of Climate Change in Ninh Thuan Province” programme valued at 10.6 million EUR.

The Belgian Government granted 9 million EUR to support the project and the remaining came from the Vietnamese Government’s corresponding fund.

Ninh Thuan province is mobilising all resources to carry out the project, the last non-refundable ODA project funded by the Belgian Government in the province, to respond to climate change and develop local socio-economy.
