According to the Committee on Capacity Building and Implementing ODA-based Water Projects in the south-central province of Ninh Thuan, from March 20-30, more than 500 people – including staff from state-owned agencies, pupils, students and inhabitants from Ninh Thuan, directly partook in activities in response to the World Water Day 2018. The event, themed “Nature for Water”, explored how communities and governments can use nature to overcome the water challenges of the 21st century.

The activities were implemented within the Belgium-funded project of “Integrated water resource management and urban planning related to climate change in Ninh Thuan, in coordination with relevant agencies and departments.

One of the biggest activities, a meeting at a new urban lake at the center of Phan Rang – Thap Cham city, conveyed the strong message about “Planting and protecting trees as a means for water conservation”. The meeting, which was joined by more than 200 people, saw the signing of commitments in properly using water resources, as well as planting and taking care of trees.



The meeting was followed by a parade of students along the main streets of Phan Rang-Thap Cham city to promote messages on raising awareness c about protecting water resources and taking urgent actions in protecting the water resources in an effective manner. “Water is a valuable asset, which must not be wasted, even a single drop.”


 

 

Activities included planting of new trees and looking after about 300 other newly-planted trees at the urban lake in the Phuoc My quarter of the city – with many of these trees being provided by commercial enterprises.



 

 

Especially, in order to attract people into activities about responding to climate change, communications activities included roundtable discussions about water resources as well as the signing of deals on water protection in Phuoc Tien commune in Bac Ai district. Organized in combination with local authorities, the activities included the participation of nearly 100 local residents from six hamlets of the commune.

The roundtable discussions contributed to further improve public awareness about water resources, solutions on water resources protection, and proper use of water in agricultural production and livelihood activities.

Notably, after the roundtable, Phuoc Tien’s People’s Committee began a project to upgrade the commune’s Tra Co canal, with the participation of local people and under financial support of some enterprises.


 

 

Also within these many activities, the Committee on Capacity Building and Implementing ODA-based Water Projects in Ninh Thuan province has teamed up with women living in Street are No.2 of Van Hai quarter of Phan Rang – Thap Cham to organise a meeting to talk about water resources and climate change, with the use of pictures and photos as effective tools to further enhance women’s awareness of water resources and climate change.

This will help attract more women into activities to cope with climate change and protect water resources through specific actions and solutions. This meeting was participated in by more than 50 women.

It is necessary to conduct awareness events for the public which will help them to make people realize the importance of water. Never waste water and try to utilize it as possible in different ways which will help in saving the water.
