VTV.vn - The causes of worsening land erosion along rivers and coast in the Mekong Delta were analyzed at a seminar held in the Mekong Delta.

Currently Bac Lieu province is losing 5 ha of coastal line per year and Ca Mau is losing 450 ha per year due to erosion. The local authorities of related provinces are cooperating with relevant ministries to build up counter plans, which include sea dyke and land use planning.

In addition, science-technology measures will be deployed to efficiently control and prevent the erosion.

Several successful solutions to land erosion were shared at the conference such as wave breaker fences in Soc Trang and Bac Lieu, fortified embankments and protective forests.
