Mrs. Pham Thi Hai Yen, BORDA Vietnam Project Representative, presents the Integrated Sanitation Approach for Urban Development

Practical Approaches, Stronger Cooperation

To strengthen the cooperation between Germany and Vietnam in the area of water resource protection, the German Water Partnership together with the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association (VWSA) held a two-day Vietnamese-German Water Forum in Hanoi on 19–20 March 2019. Participating in the Forum were about 150 German and Vietnamese entrepreneurs, professors, local decision makers and people working in the water and sanitation sector. The German Ambassador to Vietnam and the Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee also took part in the Forum and delivered the opening speech. BORDA Vietnam fully participated in all Forum activities including a field trip, presentations, exhibits and networking events.

Mrs. Pham Thi Hai Yen, BORDA Vietnam Project Representative, introduced the Integrated Sanitation Approach (ISA) for Urban Development as a way to localise the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda. The presentation included a case study on applying the ISA in the city of Bac Ninh, which has been successfully implemented over 2 years and is to be tentatively extended in the coming years. The Integrated Sanitation Approach and the Bac Ninh case study were also highlighted at a side exhibit where BORDA provided informational materials illustrating the ISA and decentralised wastewater treatment solutions (DEWATS).

During the Forum, entrepreneurs and professionals working in the water and sanitation sector expressed their interest in BORDA’s new Integrated Sanitation Approach, which opened up practical discussion topics such as urban faecal sludge management, the possibility of disseminating ISA to other cities in Vietnam, and DEWATS applications in schools and animal farming operations. These conversations help to lay the groundwork for promising future cooperations with entrepreneurial actors, enabling BORDA to widen our scope of work in Vietnam.
