Agreement Signing Ceremony on “Strengthening Communication Capacity for Better Climate Resilience in the Mekong River Delta” (CCBCR)
In the afternoon on Thursday 2 July 2020, the Agreement Signing Ceremony of the project “Strengthening Communication Capacity for Better Climate Resilience in the Mekong River Delta” was held at Cuu Long Hotel, My Tho city, Tien Giang province with the aim to start the project.
The project aims to improve the communication capacities of relevant agencies and raise awareness of local communities on the saline intrusion in the region for their active participation for better climate resilience. Pilot activities on models of response to saline intrusion will be implemented in Tien Giang, one of the most affected provinces to develop the saline intrusion monitoring systems and enhance the early warning and forecast networks for the information management; as well as to support local communities to proactively collect and store water for domestic use and production activities, ensuring the water security in the region. Meanwhile, effective communication programs will be developed to raise awareness of local communities in the Mekong River Delta on severe saline water intrusion and involve their active participation in initiating and implementing activities for climate resilience.
