Sweden is ready to collaborate with Vietnam on preserving the natural water resources and climate change resistance, according to Viet Nam News.
The statement was presented by the Swedish Ambassador for Climate Change, Lars Ronnas, at a press conference hosted by the Swedish Embassy in Hanoi on Tuesday.
The press conference was held on the occasion of the Internation Water Week 2018, and the Swedish delegation expressed their willingness to corporate with Vietnam in solving the issues the country has with access to clean water.
“When it comes to making use of resources, we are all looking for new ways to organise society. There is no model to duplicate, so we need to develop our own,” said Ambassador for Climate Change, Lars Ronnas at the press conference.
“Both of our countries are moving from a period of water abundance to more water scarcity as a result of climate change. It is necessary to improve the management of water demand through pricing as Vietnam has the lowest price on water in ASEAN to promote water use efficiency and water re-use,” said Birgitta Liss Lymer, Stockholm International Water Institute, who also attended the press conference.
