VTV.vn - Together with Hau Giang, households in other Mekong Delta provinces are under threat of losing their properties due to landslides and are in dire need of being relocated.

Landslides across the Mekong Delta region are getting more unpredictable and are increasing in terms of location and speed. Research shows that more than 560 riverside and seaside spots were hit by landslides stretching a total length of nearly 800 kilometers. Landslides in the region have not followed a certain pattern in recent years.  According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, it will cost around 350 million USD to relocate houses and protect important infrastructure. This will be a huge challenge for the state budget.
