Dr Phung Chi Sy, vice chairman of the Vietnam Association for the Protection of Nature and Environment, has said it is vital to develop an environmental protection plan for the entire basin.  “The plan must clearly identify the pollution sources and degradation sources and make forecasts for until 2030.” It is vital to assess the pollutant levels in each river, and strictly regulate waste discharge into it from industrial and residential areas. “Any act of environmental pollution must be severely penalised.”
