Detailed description of project Back

The proposed Project falls under the Indicative Programme for Cooperation (PIC/ICP) signed on 22 September 2002 between the governments of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

On 1 March 2004, the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) submitted a Project request prepared by the Cao Bang Province for five Irrigation Projects. Subsequently, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Luxembourg mandated Lux-Development in September 2004 to study the request and to formulate a Project taking into account the examination and feasibility of a number of parameters:

  • Profile and Description of Beneficiaries;
  • Capacity of Human Resources related to Sustainability and Management;
  • Opportunities for Agricultural Production (in the context of food security);
  • Local Contribution(s).

The specific objective is to finalise the implementation of an extensive study on the feasibility of the Nam Tuan gravity-fed surface irrigation scheme, to edit the Feasibility Study and the Detailed Design Drawings and Reports and to assist with the planning of the construction of the schemes.
