ADB Supports Vietnam Modernising Irrigation Systems

Posted: Monday, December 03, 2018

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved over US$100 million in financing to help the Government of Vietnam install eight modernised irrigation systems, which will supply water on-demand through pressurised pipe systems, and also cover policy measures to help the provinces of Binh Thuan, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, Khanh Hoa, and Ninh Thuan improve irrigation management services, including the operations and maintenance of irrigation infrastructure. It will also support the development of improved groundwater and water productivity assessments as well as micro-irrigation systems based on the type of crops and farmer demand.

ADB’s assistance is composed of a US$100 million concessional loan and a US$300,000 grant from the Climate Change Fund, established in May 2008 to facilitate greater investments in ADB’s developing member countries to effectively tackle climate change.
