Royal HaskoningDHV has been selected to deliver the first integrated Master Plan for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, funded by the World Bank.

According to their announcement, the plan will set out development orientations and spatial planning across different disciplines in the Mekong Delta to 2030, with a further view towards 2050.

“The geographical situation of the Mekong Delta renders it highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including rising sea levels, flooding during the wet season and water shortages during the dry season. The overall purpose behind the plan is to build a resilient Mekong delta and help countries like Vietnam make climate-smart choices which are long-term, integrated and adaptive,” said Royal HaskoningDHV.

As part of its role, and working closely with its client, the Ministry of Planning and Investment, Royal HaskoningDHV will develop a comprehensive strategic investment framework to help Vietnam use its resources effectively and develop its competitive advantage.

The project also involves the creation of a ‘digital decision support toolkit’ to promote an evidence-based planning approach in driving future direction.

An official signing ceremony took place on April 9, witnessed by Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management, Cora van Nieuwenhuizen and the Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam, Trinh Dinh Dung. Cora van Nieuwenhuizen and Mark Rutte were visiting the country as part of a trade mission.
