Vietnam: Hau Giang plans clean water funds

The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Hau Giang plans to allocate more than US$1.56 million to bring clean water to local rural residents in 2016. Under the plan, over 4,000 additional rural households will have access to clean water, raising the rate of those supplied with clean water to 88 percent. The rural clean water programme will be implemented together with other socio- economic development and new rural area building projects, focused on remote areas with crowded populations. The province aims to mobilise different resources for the programme while offering incentives to investors from other provinces.
