The project was approved by the Decision No. 1383/QĐ-TTg issued and valid on 4th August 2021 of Deputy Prime Minister Lê Văn Thành.
The project lasts from 2021 to 2025 and has the overall goal to issue targets (quota) of water resources inventory (first time) on nationwide and interprovincial river basins with exact, systematic, and timely information. Data on water resources inventory, water exploitation and usage, and wastewater discharge to water sources are important information serving for state management on water resources, planning, coordination, and allocation of water resources. Those are also a foundation for improving policy, legislation on water resources, establishing and adjusting strategy and planning on usage and protection of water resources towards water security, socio-economy development, national digitalization, and providing online public services on water resources.
Detailed objectives of the project are described in Decision No. 1383/QĐ-TTg. One of the notable objectives is constructing a software application on management, update, and exploitation of natural water resources inventory and publishing results of water resources inventory.
