NRM @ Ho Chi Minh City

On October 13, Ho Chi Minh City hosted the¬†workshop “Towards a Global Approach to Water Issues: Management, Monitoring and Treatment” organized by the Embassy in Hanoi and the Consulate General in HCMC.

We contributed to the workshop with a¬†talk on “Modelling and managing the water, energy and food nexus in a changing Vietnam” showing the results of the IMRR project on the Red River basin (the slides are available HERE).

The event, which drew a great interest among local institutions, research centers and local businesses, aimed at creating a useful and operational opportunity for meetings between representatives of the Italian academic and entrepreneurial world, on one side, and local subjects, on the other side, on issues of growing relevance in an increasingly vulnerable and exposed to climate change country, which needs to put in place urgent interventions to effectively respond to water management issues.
