The overall objective of the Vietnam Water Governance Study is to analyze the current governance of the water sector to inform the development of strategies, provide an integrated view of challenges, and identify the most fundamental shifts needed to achieve national water security. In a first, diagnostic phase, the study analyzes water governance systems and identifies key areas for further work. The second phase will be to work with the Government of Vietnam and stakeholders to identify and develop key policy recommendations. 

This is the report on the first phase—the diagnostic. This is essentially a scoping exercise to: •

  • Analyze current governance structures and associated risks, opportunities, and priorities. 
  • Assess the economic impact of inaction through a rapid analysis of biophysical and economic aspects.
  • Identify key areas for further analysis in the second phase of the study.
