Vietnam is experiencing increasing variability in water availability across regions and seasons. Mitigating against the impacts of such  changes requires a thorough assessment of the water challenges and the design of multi-stakeholder solutions, grounded in sound analytics.
Commissioned by the 2030 Water Resources Group, this analysis provides a high-level assessment of the Vietnam water sector, aimed at assessing the water demand-supply gap, mapping ongoing stakeholder initiatives, and identifying key private sector driven solutions for priority areas.

With the intent of fostering greater collaboration between the public, private and civil society on water resources management, this report aims to deepen the dialogue on collective action within the country. It has been developed through extensive stakeholder interviews and has been guided by a multi-stakeholder Advisory Group. We hope this document triggers an active dialogue between the stakeholders leading to concrete action on water security solutions in Vietnam.
