The project will assist the Government of Viet Nam to prepare for future national water security by establishing a national water resources information system (WRIS) that will enable fact-based integrated water resources management, including a rational policy-based system for water allocation and demand management. The WRIS, underpinned by a comprehensive national database on water sources and water demand, will provide detailed information that will allow effective water governance aimed at water security in the face of a growing gap between water supply and demand. The WRIS will align with and support the government s stated goal of promoting sustainable growth and building a knowledge-based economy. It will be consistent with the ADB s Water Operational Plan s priorities of supporting fact-based water governance as well as expanded knowledge and capacity development.
