Guidance to mobilize community participation in water resource protection in Vietnam

Water resource protection and the participation of all parties in water resource protection is an important approach to help the enterprises in water supply field improve performance efficiency and ensure safe and sustainable water supply.

The project commissioned a study and compilation of the “Guidance to mobilize community participation in water resource protection in Vietnam”, carried out by the Center for Environment and Community Research (CECR) - a reputable consultancy in water and environment sectors in Vietnam. It is hopeful that the handbook will be a useful reference to help VWSA members and those who interested in the water sector.

VWSA would like to appreciate the Government of the Republic of Finland for sponsoring the project, and the close cooperation of FWF in implementing the project. We would also thank the CECR team who compiled and edited the handbook.
The “Developing the Water and Sanitation Sector in Vietnam through New Partnerships” project has been implemented by Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association (VWSA) and Finnish Water Forum (FWF). The project was funded by the Government of the Republic of Finland to start in March 2017 and to finish in December 2020.
