Vietnam is a relatively new country engagement for the 2030 WRG. Under this partnership, the 2030 WRG has engaged stakeholders from government, the private sector, and civil society in identifying key water-related challenges in the country, starting with the formation of a multi-stakeholder Advisory Board to guide its hydro-economic assessment in the country.
Following the analysis, the 2030 WRG has facilitated a series of meetings, roundtable discussions, and focused group discussions with representatives from government, the private sector, and civil society to prioritize focus areas and solutions, and to prepare for the launch of thematic workstreams. There is strong interest from the public sector, businesses, and civil society organizations to engage in these workstreams.
Our work in Vietnam is done through two workstreams:
The 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) is a public, private, civil society partnership hosted by the World Bank Group. The partnership supports country-level collaboration designed to unite diverse groups with a common interest in the sustainable management of water resources.
Our global partners include bilateral agencies and governments (Swiss Development Cooperation, Swedish Development Cooperation, the governments of Hungary and Israel), private companies (Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, Ab InBev), development banks (IFC, World Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank), INGOs and IGPs (UNDP, GGGI, GWP, the World Economic Forum, BRAC and IUCN). The 2030 WRG was launched in 2008 at the World Economic Forum and has been hosted by The World Bank Group since 2012.
