Activities launched to respond to world water, meteorological days

06/03/2017
The Ministry of National Resources and Environment has issued a document guiding localities to organize activities in response to the World Water Day (March 22) and the World Meteorological Day (March 23).
This year’s World Water Day highlights the theme “Waste Water”, aiming to raise public awareness of reducing water pollution and using fresh water resources economically and sustainably.
Meanwhile, themed “Understanding Clouds”, the World Meteorological Day 2017 stresses the importance of clouds for climate and water while helping communities gain deeper insight into the significance of hydrometeorology in mitigating natural disasters and other socio-economic activities.
To response to those events, the ministry has asked the People’s Committees of cities and provinces to direct local Natural Resources and Environment departments to coordinate with relevant units in making plans and organizing meetings and other activities such as workshops, exhibitions and parades, among others.
The Department of Water Resources Management is directed to provide information and documents as well as cooperate with localities in carrying out the above activities.
The information and documents related to the World Water Day 2017 will be updated on the department’s website at http://dwrm.gov.vn.

The conventional freshwater sources now available in the region are barely sufficient to maintain the study area's current quality of life and economy.

demand for water can be influenced by conservation measures in urban, agricultural, and industrial sectors, and by economic (pricing) policies.

It is important to recognize that, while demand management efforts may economize on water effectively, they are also rarely costless.

Given the inevitability of population growth, it is imperative that per capita consumption of water in the study area be addressed through conservation measures in all three major sectors of water use: urban, agricultural, and industrial.

Conservation measures to reduce water demand are generally well established, but they often require societal or economic incentives to implement.

LawrenceSamuels 13/3/17 14:10

Although some conservation measures are costly, most compare favorably with measures to increase water supplies. Moreover, water conservation measures invariably have a positive effect on water quality and the environment, if only by minimizing the impacts on freshwater resources and the volumes of wastewater generated by human activities.

The quantity of additional water that can be made available for reuse by reducing losses from sewers may be significant.

There are several possible explanations for this high deviation between the amount of water entering the city (urban water use) and that leaving (wastewater).

Only Solidar 13/3/17 14:13

Water use in the agricultural sector throughout the study area is highly controlled by government agencies, and conservation measures have proven to be highly effective in reducing agricultural water use.
