Vietnam wAter Cooperation Initiative (VACI) is the Vietnam-based global platform to share and co-create innovative water solutions with particular emphasis on Vietnam and tropical water issues. Stakeholders from the global water industry gather at VACI to share business opportunities and showcase the latest water technologies. Under auspice of Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) of Vietnam, VACI has been held annually since 2012 and gathered stakeholders from the water industry around the world to share business opportunities and showcase the latest water technologies toward water sustainability in Vietnam and the region.

Nowadays, there are more than 40% of the world’s population relying on water from trans-boundary rivers and lakes and thus effective sustainable management of trans-boundary waters is crucial for development and peace. Vietnam is also a country with 392 trans-boundary rivers and streams, in which are some well-known rivers such as: Mekong river, Red river… This situation require strategic policy to manage and allocate the water resources effectively between conflicting users. Not only effective policy is needed, but the actual application of such policy should also be considered carefully.

In line with global water industry trends, local water strategic agenda and responding to the call of World Water Forum (WWF) 2015 for “implementation of IWRM”  & World Water Day 22nd Mar 2016 – “Water and Jobs”, VACI 2016 will feature on the following themes, but not limited to:

  • Trans-boundary Water Security and Climate Resilience
  • Water Investigation and Monitoring and Planning
  • Trans-boundary Water Management, Policy and Governance
  • Water, Environment health, Energy and Food nexus
  • Water-related Risks Deduction and Management
  • Water Supply and Treatment
  • Social and Cultural Values of Water



The primary goal of Vietnam wAter Cooperation Initiative (VACI) is to build a Vietnam‐based global partnership, the first of its kinds in Vietnam, where scientists, engineers and students from local Universities, Industries and Foreign Partners can meet, share and work together to provide water solutions in Vietnam and the region.



The symposium is a part of VACI  Initiative seeking to bring together water-related expertise in areas of academic, design, engineering, and governing of water infrastructure and those engaged in development of innovative water solutions and tools for sustainable development and management of water resources in Vietnam and beyond.

 Detailed presentation of VACI Initative can be found at   here.
