Viet Nam: Sustainable Rural Infrastructure Development Project in Northern Mountain Provinces
SHARE THIS PAGE
The Sustainable Rural Infrastructure Development Project in Northern Mountain Provinces aimed to rehabilitate and upgrade deteriorated rural infrastructure in 15 provinces of northern Viet Nam, where most people live in sparsely populated villages. In the provinces, there were some 50,000 kilometers (km) of primary and secondary irrigation canals that supported 200,000 hectares (ha) of irrigated land and required rehabilitation, of which only 16,270 km or 32% were lined. Improving irrigation water management was critical for food security with the increasing demands and the effects of climate change.
