VTV.vn - According to a recent report by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Vietnam is facing a water shortage.

Water usage in industrial and agricultural production is causing a scarcity of water resources in many regions. Ministries are working together to find solutions to this issue.

This is a car wash shop in Hanoi. To wash one car, they have to pump 1m3 of water. For a month, the shop uses thousands of m3 of water. The waste water is discharged directly into the environment and can't be recycled.

Currently, the Department of Water Resources Management under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment is developing mechanisms to promote the effective and sustainable use of water resources.

According to the Asian Development Bank, inland water resources in Vietnam are only at about 3,000 m3 / person / year, lower than the global average of 4,000 m3 / person / year.
