Viet Nam - Water Resources Assistance Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 8) : Environmental impact assessment : Dau Tieng subproject (English)

The Water Resources Assistance Project will support the Government of Viet Nam in the modernization of agriculture, and enhance water resources management, by improving irrigation systems, reducing flood and disaster risks, and promoting an environmentally, sustainable development of the Thu Bon Basin, through integrated development, and management of water resources. Whereas in the long run, the project will provide substantial environmental, and socioeconomic benefits, during implementation potential environmental adversity may occur, as a result of construction works, particularly of dams, as disruption in aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity will occur due to hydrology changes in surface, and groundwater, with further impacts on coastal aquaculture. In addition, water users from canal lining, may suffer the effects from canal lining, and of dredged, and excavated soils. An environmental management plan will be developed within the project, classified as a category B project. Mitigation measures stipulate the following: reforestation practices will compensate for natural habitat losses, particularly reforestation of 20 hectares within the Yen Lap Watershed; an environmental review will be conducted on provincial aquaculture programs, to ensure coastal aquaculture, and restore degraded wetlands; water quality will be monitored in estuarine areas; and, extension services should include topics of appropriate selection, and for the application of biocides. It is specified that no international waterways are associated to, nor affected by the implementation of the project.
