The Challenge

Vietnam is the 13th most
populous country in the world. Two-thirds of its 86 million people live along the country’s three main river basins–Thai Binh, the Mekong Delta, and Dong Nai.

Vietnam has 2,360 rivers with lengths of more than 10 kilometers, with an abundant supply of water. But a lack of infrastructure and nancial capacity to improve infrastructure means much of this water is not used.
