Event Description

How Vietnam can thrive in a water-scarce world: supporting rapid economic development with sustainable water management.

Addressing water quality and quantity issues has never been more critical. For Vietnam, this is a unique opportunity as it’s one of the richest agricultural regions in the world and its economy is developing rapidly. If businesses, government and investors make the right decisions today, we have a chance to build an industrial base in Vietnam that has smart water management as one of its bedrock principles and is built to be water-resilient down the road. Which tools and best practices can be leveraged to drive sustainable water use and water management?

Join us at this breakfast event to hear from government and industry on the innovative approaches to build a Vietnam that enjoys continued success in an increasingly water-scarce world.
