On June 12 and 13, 2017, we took part in the meeting of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) in Ho Chi Minh City of the Mekong Delta Plan project on communication and information dissemination strategy. Together with IHE, IUCN, Can Tho University, Fresh Studio, Water.NL, and KnowH2O, we discussed on state of the project’s work packages. On June 13, 2017, Robert Proost of RVO-Netherlands and Tom Kompier of the Royal Dutch Embassy Vietnam joined our TAG.
The Mekong Delta Plan (MDP, 2013) contains specific recommendations for a safe, sustainable, and prosperous long-term development for the delta, as well as more generic recommendations on institutional strengthening and transboundary cooperation. We are working on key messages for provincial civil servants and for farmers in the Mekong Delta, as well as on the communication strategy, on training materials, and on the organization of a ‘Train the Trainers’ workshop later this year.
