Meeting to mark 2014 World Water Day

A national-level meeting will be held in the northern mountainous province of Lai Chau on March 21 as part of a programme recognising 2014 World Water Day.

Organised by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Electricity of Vietnam, in conjunction with the provincial People’s Committee, the programme will include a scientific conference and a photo exhibition on water, energy and life, and an art performance.

Themed “Water and Energy”, this year's 2014 World Water Day aims to raise awareness of the close relationship between these two basic elements, and calls on people to find management measures to maintain economic growth and meet human needs through sustainable utilisation of water resources and the efficient and economical use of energy towards a green economy.

It will be also an opportunity for managers, businesses, scientists and the community to share initiatives and opinions to deal with issues related to water and energy.

Lai Chau is one of the localities in the riverhead of the Da River basin, which holds great potential to develop hydro-electricity.-VNA

As my knowledge, Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface. It is vital for all known forms of life!

How can I join this meeting? I want to know how does the State resolve the problem of water shortages.

Raising people's awareness of using water would be tough but we have to do it, for our own interest and for the future generation.

Mr. Quoc Kien, I have a friend who are working for the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and organizing this event. I can connect you to him, so you can ask him to have a seat in this meeting.

I also want to go there to see pictures in the exhibition on water, energy and life, and join the art performance. I think it will be very interesting!

Water, however, is not a finite resource, but rather re-circulated as potable water in precipitation in quantities many degrees of magnitude higher than human consumption

Lê Tín 19/3/14 22:03

In the developing world, 90% of all wastewater still goes untreated into local rivers and streams.

This is a meaningful event. Young people should be informed and join it actively. I sure that each of us will find a lesson for our own to save the water!
