Water related challenges in the Mekong Delta are very complex. The Mekong Delta is regularly hit by typhoons, heavy rainfall and drought, and is also affected by events further upstream in the Mekong basin. The socio-economic development of the Mekong provinces is essential for the country and the Vietnamese government is paying a lot of attention to tackling the water problems. This is especially important given population growth, urbanisation and the effects of climate change. Among important challenges in the Delta are increasing salinisation, groundwater depletion and subsidence.
