OV scientist in France helps promote sustainable rice cultivation in Mekong Delta
Dr. Le Toan Thuy, an overseas Vietnamese scientist in France, has joined projects to help Vietnamese managers and farmers effectively develop rice cultivation models in the Mekong Delta region.
The projects aim to monitor and observe flood, drought and saltwater intrusion in the Mekong Delta by satellites, thus analysing their impact on rice yield, building a future simulation scenario of climate change and human impacts, and making predictions about effects on the region in the future.
GeoRice has been implemented for two years, helping locals, managers, and policymakers of regional localities take appropriate adaptation solutions, thus ensuring rice farming in a sustainable manner.
