Vietnam lacks a comprehensive strategy to cope with coastal erosion, which is recognised as one of the major consequences of rising sea levels, experts have warned. Vietnam lacks a comprehensive strategy to cope with coastal erosion, which is recognised as one of the major consequences of rising sea levels, experts have warned. The speed of erosion has increased year-on-year, with coasts being affected depending on their structure and use by local residents, said Le Van Cong, Deputy Head of the Vietnam Administration of Seas and Islands' Oceanography Centre. Cong, who was speaking at a recent workshop held in Hanoi, added that between 15-30 metres of coast was being lost per year in Thanh Hoa and Tien Giang provinces and between 10-20 metres in HCM City and Tra Vinh Province. The stretches of coastline that have suffered the most from coastal erosion since 1990 are located in seven provinces of Binh Thuan, Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Phu Yen, Thanh Hoa and Thua Thien Hue. Head of the latter's Seas and Islands Division Dang Xuan Dung said, "The erosion has posed a threat to lives of hundreds of local residents and their homes." Thua Thien Hue now has a 30-km stretch of eroded coastline, about one-third of which is extreme, he said. According to Cong, the higher frequency and intensity of tropical storms, over exploitation of sand and reef, and mangrove deforestation were to blame for the increase of coastal erosion in the country. Statistics released by the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorology…... [read more]

City tries to avoid budget losses (13-07-2009) HCM CITY — The HCM City People's Council is considering several measures to prevent the further delay of investment projects, which is causing huge losses to the city budget. Le Van Trung, a member of the council, said the delay of 66 projects had "caused a huge waste" to the budget. He said continuation of these projects would require an additional VND2.85 trillion (US$160 million). Progress had been impeded by the delays in site clearance, a lack of funds, long approval procedures, and poor allocation of funds. "The compensation rates for agricultural land have also slowed down several projects," said deputy Le Hong Hoanh, director of the municipal Agricultural and Rural Development department. "Many farmers refused to relinquish their land because of the low rate." Truong Van Lam, a council member, said compensation rates differed, depending on how the land would be used. With such a broad range of rates, farmers and others were reluctant to give up their land. Lam suggested that rates be pegged to land prices in the real estate market. Huynh Cong Hung, deputy director of the council's Economic and State Budget Committee, said he believed that there were no lacks of funds and that delays were due to poor project management at the district level. Several districts lacked staff to manage projects, including 262 in Can Gio, 155 in Nha Be and 169 in Tan Phu last year. Council member Nguyen Ngoc Hoa said city project management was…...
