Landslide map for Mekong delta region needed

by VTV415 May 2018 Last updated at 06:16 AM

VTV.vn - The Mekong Delta region is a hot spot for landslides. Currently, there are over 560 areas, spanning nearly 800km that are at high risk of landslides in the region.

For this reason, a map detailing landslide-prone areas is essential. With this map, authorities will be able to forecast possible landslides and carry out evacuations in a timely manner.

According to experts, without a landslide hazard map, local authorities in the Mekong Delta will only have a very limited plan. In addition, measures to reduce the required sand in construction works and initiatives to plant more trees in the region must be conducted to prevent further landslides.
