A Vietnamese officials has affirmed that Vietnam is committed to complying with the obligations and responsibilities required to protect the environment and water resources within the framework of bilateral cooperation programs between Vietnam and Cambodia.

(07-07-2007)

PHNOM PENH — Viet Nam is committed to protecting the environment and water resources within the framework of bilateral co-operation programmes between Viet Nam and Cambodia, said General Secretary of the Viet Nam National Mekong Committee (VNMC) Nguyen Hong Toan.

Toan made the pledge at a seminar on the environmental impacts of Viet Nam’s hydroelectric power plants on the Se San river basin held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on Thursday.

The VNMC leader said that the plants have spurred socio-economic development for local people living along the common border area and have strengthened the Cambodia-Laos-Viet Nam Economic Development Triangle.

Viet Nam will work with Cambodia in order to minimise the negative impacts of the exploitation of water resources along the Mekong River, Toan said.

However, according to Tur Hagel, representative from Sweden’s international consultant organisation, Swenco Groner, field research and document references showed that the building of Viet Nam’s hydroelectric power plants has not polluted Cambodian territory downstream of the Se San River.

For his part, Cambodian Minister of the Environment Mok Mareth said in his inaugural speech that the event was aimed at implementing bilateral co-operation between Mekong River committees of the two countries as well as between Viet Nam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and Cambodia’s Ministry of Environment.—VNS

Mekong partners join efforts through SAWAP (Sanitation and Water Partnership for the Mekong Region)to achieve the MDGs.

Updated 18 July 2007 from http://www.irc.nl/page/36838.

The Mekong sub-region is increasingly becoming a focus area for the Water and Sanitation Program - East Asia and the Pacific (WSP-EAP) support, with SAWAP (Sanitation and Water Partnership for the Mekong Region), a demand-responsive, multi-country technical assistance programme, as a significant mechanism for delivering programmes. Consultative meetings have been held in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam and a joint inter-country planning meeting in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to help identify demand, further informing WSP’s support work planning for FY08 and beyond. The meetings have also resulted in the establishment of SAWAP Core Teams and agreement on a partner-led coordination mechanism for SAWAP. The three initial WSP focus countries have agreed on six specific SAWAP-supported cross-boundary projects that reflect SAWAP’s two parallel activity clusters, namely identifying and scaling up sustainable solutions and mobilizing resources to achieve the MDGs. In May 2007, the partnership completed its first phase of consultation workshops and field visits by organizing a start up meeting in Yunnan Province of China. Beginning July 2007, FY08 will see an increasingly intensive phase of expanding WSP support work to country-led SAWAP initiatives. Access to adequate sanitation in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam, averaged just 36% in 2004, with access to improved water supply standing at 59%.
