Success Story #5: Regional Coordination in the Mekong-Delta

The Mekong-Delta has been farmed for many generations and is one of the principle agricultural regions of Vietnam, contributing 50 percent of total food output and 90 percent of rice exports, as well as 70 percent of fruit and 65 percent of aquatic products. Although productivity is still high, it is at risk from multiple threats and any decline in output would have severe consequences not just for the region but for the country as a whole.
