Speaking at the workshop, Assc. Professor, Dr. Nguyen Chu Hoi said that the coastal resources has been utilized and managed separately by sectors, without a long-term and integrated approach. Specifically in Quang Nam province and Da Nang city, the conflicts among relevant sectors in exploiting, using water resources and protecting environment tend to increase.

The same situation has been observed in inter-provincial river basins as Vu Gia – Thu Bon. According to Dr. Dao Trong Tu – Director of Centre of water management and climate change, the water resources management has been carried out at the basin level, leading to conflicts among sectors and users in upstream and downstream. As a result, the living quality has been undermined in the Vu Gia – Thu Bon river basin.

Recognizing these existing issues, in the workshop, participants proposed recommendations to solve inter-provincial problems (from watersheds to coral reefs) for Quang Nam province and Da Nang city. A brief of policies on integrated water resources management in river basin and integrated Da Nang – Quang Nam coastal management has also been documented in the workshop.
