Piloting Integrated Non Revenue Water (NRW) and Asset Management (ASM) Software for Nghe An Water Supply Company in Viet NamIn Viet Nam, like in many parts of developing Asia, most water utilities have a limited understanding of their existing infrastructure systems, resulting in undervalued assets that leads to gaps in systems management and poor service delivery. Nghe An Water Supply Company (NAWASCO), the water agency for Vinh City, wanted to resolve this and complement the nonrevenue water (NRW) reduction project under Tranche 3 of the ADB-backed Water Sector Investment Program by using information technology for integrated NRW and asset management software (AMS), which will improve the water distribution system and service delivery. In particular, the objective of the PDA is to test the technologies through hydraulic modeling of the water distribution system to: simulate system performance and apply the model to define pressures zones, demand management zones (DMZ), and district metered areas (DMA); design and manage NRW; and optimize the operation of the water supply system.
Assessing the Applicability of Nanotechnologies in Viet Nam’s Water and SanitationThe water and sanitation sector in Viet Nam requires significant investment in order to attain the level of coverage a developed country has. Due to urbanization, clean drinking water is increasingly becoming scarce in the country. This pilot and demonstration activity (PDA) sought to assess the potential development of nanotechnologies in the field of water treatment and sanitation and how these can be a cost-effective and efficient means to improve water service delivery in Viet Nam.
