Netherlands Embassy (Hanoi) is seeking sustainable, smart and (technically) innovative Dutch concepts to address agro-water challenges. 

Over the decades, Vietnam and the Netherlands have built up a dynamic strategic relationship, particularly in the areas of water management and sustainable agriculture. After delivering the Mekong Delta Plan in 2013, the Netherlands is currently working on an Agricultural Transformation Plan to support the country in a move away from intensive rice farming toward more high-value and sustainable food production systems. This approach, in which water management and agriculture are inextricably linked, is a pre-condition for success to address the increasing prevalence of flooding, drought, salt intrusion as well as land subsidence in the delta.

Netherlands Embassy (Hanoi) is seeking sustainable, smart and (technically) innovative Dutch concepts to address these agro-water challenges. Be quick and submit your proposals by 31 October to HAN-LNV@minbuza.nl.

Winners (announced on 14 November) will receive prize money, magazine publication and further business advice.

The call details and application form are available in "documenten' below  for you to download. 

If you have any further enquiries, please email : han-lnv@minbuza.nl.
