Expertise France carries out a feasibility study on the potential for the development of nanotechnology in the Water and Sanitation Sector in Viet Nam.
The project “Supporting Viet Nam Water and Sanitation Sector through the potentiality of Nanotechnology” funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), has for objective to evaluate the potential for the development of nanotechnology in the field of water treatment and water sanitation in Viet Nam.
With a population of 90 million inhabitants, Viet Nam faces a significant challenge regarding water management. The rising scarcity of drinking water, the rapidly growing urbanization and the impacts of climate change represent serious concerns for the authorities. Thus, olutions brought up by nanotechnology in the field of safedrinking water and sanitation could appear as more cost effective and efficient alternatives to traditional technologies.s. They have been successfully implemented in different parts of the world such as the United States, Japan, Germany, South Korea, the United Kingdom and France.
The study of 4 months will thus help to:
- Understand the sector of water and sanitation in Vietnam;
- Understand the potential of nanotechnology in Vietnam;
- Examine a range of effective and profitable solutions of nanotechnologies, which could improve the benefits of the services of water and sanitation in Viet Nam;
- Define of the scope and the scale for the development of nanotechnology in the sector of water treatment and water sanitation in Viet Nam;
- Examine the required level of capacity building on nanotechnology in the field of water treatment and water sanitation in Viet Nam;
- Determine the need for the creation of a Fab Lab dedicated to nanotechnology in the sector of water treatment and water sanitation in Viet Nam.
