Central Highland - the source of many flowing rivers to neighboring territories. It is doubtful whether it is the reason why we always make plans of consuming enormous water for only one of the seven regional economic areas which is landlocked country with cascade of land?
In order to take advantage of two million - hectare – resources of fertile basalt soil at an altitude of 500-600 meters above sea level, accounting for 66% of the total basalt land area of ​​the country; perennial crops in the Central Highlands area account for 43% industrial plant in the country. Coffee, key industrial crop, is accounted for 85% and the next is tea 25% - second ranking after midland and northern mountainous areas. This does not include 20% rubber and 20% malva nuts.
Exploiting geographical strengths and resources is one of the elements among national power. But we seem to lack strategic preparation relating to humans.
Firstly, in terms of natural factor, the region of climatic equatorial highland with two season is not appropriate to build artificial reservoirs for supplying water in the dry season for the planning of industrial plants because it breaks the cycle of water ecological characteristics. It is a difficult problem for a region of 54,000 km2 large, the second of the seven large economic regions. Structure here is not the only plateau but a series of adjacent plateau, surrounded by ranges of high mountain and the massif Truong Son Nam.
Potential hydropower accounts for 21% of nationwide operators. Recent evaluation of the International Center for Environmental Management (ICEM) showed that just Yali hydropower reservoirs can save Central Highlands from the drough. Yet it is had hardly calculated to feature irrigation in the dry season from hydropower reservoirs, providing water for agricultural and domestic usage. Why less than 20% of the water in the hydropower reservoirs was put into service to rescue people?
Secondly, there are only 4.4 million people in central Highlands, the lowest of the seven economic regions but the population structure has problems. Uncontrolled migration makes people in lowland moving to Central Highlands. 78-80% of the population in central Highlands spends water wastedly because of habits from the traditional rice.

Do not let chronic thirst exacerbate inequity in access to water, in which rich people have the opportunity to enjoy more favorable lands. Do not let lack of equitable water erode traditional village structure and spiritual life of water saving among community and people in Central Highlands.
