Locations/study area

The project works mainly in the Mekong Delta provinces (Sóc Trăng and Cà Mau), but involves other provinces in technical training and IWRM workshops.

Together with NAWAPI, a pilot area was decided (U Minh district in Cà Mau province), where exemplary hydrogeological investigations will be carried out, in order to improve the understanding of the coastal groundwater system and saltwater intrusion process, and in order to develop recommendations for improved groundwater protection and management. A multi-well group for hydrogeological tests and groundwater monitoring will be built in the U Minh town.
