Plan addresses unexploded bomb threat

A detailed plan for implementing a National Action Programme for overcoming the damage caused by unexploded bombs and mines has been approved by the Government.

The plan seeks to mobilise resources at home and abroad to ensure sustainable social welfare in areas contaminated by bombs and mines.

It also includes projects to help landmine victims reintegrate with the community, education to prevent accidental explosion of bombs and mines, and disarming the unexploded weapons.

It is expected to cost VND14 trillion (US$667.9 million).

Can Tho needs $66.8m to combat flooding

The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta city of Can Tho needs nearly VND1.4 trillion (US$66.79 million) for works to prevent flooding, according to a study done by France-based SCE Consultancy.

Dao Anh Dung, deputy chairman of the city People's Committee, said Can Tho is among the cities and provinces in the Mekong Delta that would be badly affected by climate change and rise in sea levels.

The SCE study will be an important basis for the city to raise funds for a comprehensive plan for integrated flood risk management.
