VTV.vn - The coastal erosion situation in the Mekong Delta has become increasingly complicated and has increased in both scope and level.

Currently, most of the coastal provinces in this delta are affected by erosion at different speeds.

Coastal areas with a strong erosion rate are Tân Thành distrct (Tiền Giang); Đông Hải district (Trà Vinh); Gành Hào district (Bạc Liêu). In Sóc Trăng province, the coastal areas from Vĩnh Châu Town to the border area with Bạc Liêu province are experiencing severe erosion.

In the coastal strip of Cà Mau province, several parts of the coast have severely eroded especially the area from the Tràng Tràm estuary to Tân Ân commune, Ngọc Hiển district, which has lost nearly 4,900 hectares of land.

In Kiên Giang province, in the past 3 years alone, the area of land that's been swallowed by the sea is about 500 ha, especially in the An Biên - An Minh area.
