Vietnam Water Law Scoping Mission

Background

The Water Efficiency Improvement in Drought Affected Provinces Project (WEIDAP) aims to modernise irrigation systems in five drought- prone provinces in the South Central Coastal and Central Highland regions of Vietnam. The project seeks to enhance climate resilience and water productivity in agriculture through improved and modernised agriculture and irrigation practices.

In 2017-18, AWP’s support to the planned US$100 million Government of Vietnam project funded by ADB included: strategic input and decisive support to the design and planning of WEIDAP; a pilot study on water charging and the development of guidelines on water charging; and a study tour to the Murray-Darling Basin aimed at providing Vietnamese participants with practical examples of modern piped
supply systems for high value crops. Further AWP funding is planned to support WEIDAP’s implementation phase from 2019 until 2023.
