ĐỒNG THÁP – The Đồng Tháp Province People’s Committee has approved a project to control flooding and regulate freshwater in Đồng Tháp Mười (Plain of Reeds).

The work, to cost VNĐ664billion (US$30 million), will be funded by official development assistance, public money and private investors.

It will be undertaken in the districts of Hồng Ngự, Tam Nông and Thanh Bình and Hồng Ngự Town, and completed by 2022.

It will mitigate the impacts of climate change and natural mishaps, safeguarding local livelihoods.

Thanks to the project, the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta province will keep freshwater resources and floods under control to improve the value of its agricultural and aquatic produce. – VNS
