The safety  of  the  embankments and dykes  represents  a huge  challenge  in  Vietnam. Besidesthe  issue  of  managing  water,  a  valuable  resource  in  terms  of  food  security  and  energyproduction,  the safety of  people and assets  is one of the essential  conditions  for ensuring longlasting economic development.

For  that  purpose,  two  seminars  were  held  in  September  2014,  one  in  Danang,  the  other  inHanoi, gathering a group of French experts, the Vietnamese authorities, a international financial institution  and the main local  concerned stakeholders.  The reports  of  these seminars,  joined to this letter, identify the major issues relative to embankment and dyke safety.

The  4000 km  of dykes in Vietnam,  some of which are thousands  years old, require  solutions that are adapted and long lasting. A number of proposals accompany these reports, which fulfilsboth the technical and human needs, as well as the requirements of the Vietnamese authorities.

Taking  up  the  challenge  of  the  Vietnamese  embankments  and  dykes  implies  mobilising  theparticipant entities. This mobilisation starts to take shape with  the  programme  of  action  drawn up by the French  experts  and the  identification  of pilot  sites by the Vietnamese  authorities.  To ensure  the  efficiency  of  this  approach,  financial  solutions  must  also  be  found  to  meet  thechallenge.

This final preparation stage is essential.
