Highlights

Since January 2016, intense drought and saltwater intrusion has severely affected more than 2 million people in 18 provinces. Although drought conditions are over in the Mekong Delta and the Central Highlands, it is still on-going in South-Central Viet Nam, until September.

  • However, impact for affected households hasn’t reduced with farmland continuing to be affected and needs still remaining, mainly on water storage and purification, hygiene promotion, nutritional support and livelihood recovery.

  • To date, 34% of the Emergency Response Plan appeal of US$48.5 million has been mobilized from various donors.
  • Funding gaps remain for food security livelihoods, with only 12% of required funds mobilized so far.
  • The following immediate recovery needs have been prioritized by the Government: water supplies for vulnerable groups, school and health facilities; and provision of rice and other food, seeds and loans for livelihood recovery.

Viet Nam: Emergency Response Plan 2016/17

Viet Nam: Emergency Response Plan 2016/17

 

At least one third of Vietnam’s 63 provinces continue to be affected by El Niño-induced drought, with 18 provinces in the South Central, Central Highlands and Mekong Delta regions severely affected. Another eight provinces are at risk of becoming severely affected in the coming weeks. An estimated 2 million (400,000 households) people in the three regions do not have regular and sufficient access to water for human consumption and domestic use.

Situation Overview

  • 18 provinces severely affected at present
  • 22 provinces currently drought-affected
  • 52 provinces aided by Government since mid-2015

Water shortage and use of unsafe water pose risk factors for outbreaks of water-related disease. This, coupled with heightened food insecurity due to drought-induced crop loss, is a likely factor in the rising rate of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) reported by the 21-24 March inter-agency rapid assessment. This showed an increase in the SAM rate from 1.3-1.8 per cent in 2015 to 1.9-2.1 per cent in the first quarter of 2016 in three of the six drought-affected provinces assessed.

In the Mekong Delta, the drought and related decrease in groundwater levels have resulted in the most extensive saltwater intrusion in 90 years. While salt water intrusion (which contaminates aquifers that support domestic water demand) is an annual phenomenon, it set in nearly two months earlier than normal in 2016 and has penetrated an average 20-30 km further inland than normal. As a result of the drought and saltwater intrusion, some 400,000 hectares of cropland have been affected with varying degrees of productivity loss, and 25,900 ha have not been planted at all.

Since late 2015, the Government has provided 5,221 tons of relief food for distribution to the three drought-affected regions and has allocated 1008 billion VND (45 million USD) for drought relief efforts nationally. This has supported trucking of 2 million m3 of water and distribution of 630,000 doses of Chloramine B and 400,000 Aquatabs for water-insecure households. On 15 March 2016, the Government of Viet Nam (GoV) requested the support of international partners for their relief efforts, with priority given to ensuring water supply, storage and treatment in drought-affected areas, as well as food security and nutritional support and enhanced monitoring of potential disease outbreaks.

Vì một hà nội vui sống, thiết kế không gian công cộng

Trừng phạt khắc nghiệt đối với trẻ em vi phạm pháp luật không ngăn chặn được tình hình tội phạm người chưa thành niên tiếp tục gia tăng

Độ tuổi chịu trách nhiệm hình sự của trẻ em là một chủ đề gây nhiều tranh cãi trên thế giới. Ở Việt Nam, vấn đề này đang được tranh luận trong quá trình sửa đổi bổ sung Bộ Luật Hình sự. Một số người tranh luận rằng phương thức tiếp cận "cứng rắn với tội phạm" là cần thiết để trừng phạt trẻ em nhằm phòng ngừa tình trạng phạm tội tiếp diễn.

Tuy nhiên, nghiên cứu quốc tế chỉ ra rằng do trẻ em còn đang trong giai đoạn phát triển, việc gán cho trẻ em và đối xử với trẻ em như những tội phạm ở độ tuổi nhỏ có thể tác động tiêu cực nghiêm trọng đến sự phát triển và khả năng cải tạo, phục hồi thành công của trẻ.

Thông điệp của Tổng Thư Ký LHQ Ban Ki-moon nhân Ngày thế giới phòng chống AIDS, 1 tháng 12

 

Ngày hôm nay, 35 năm sau khi AIDS xuất hiện, toàn thế giới đã có thể tự hào khi nhìn lại các nỗ lực phòng chống dịch. Nhưng chúng ta cũng phải hướng về phía trước với quyết tâm và cam kết chấm dứt dịch AIDS vào năm 2030.

Thế giới đã đạt được những bước tiến thực sự to lớn. Số người được điều trị HIV đã tăng cao hơn bao giờ hết. Kể từ năm 2010, số trẻ em bị nhiễm HIV do lây truyền từ mẹ đã giảm một nửa. Cứ mỗi năm số người tử vong do AIDS lại giảm thêm. Và những người nhiễm HIV đang ngày càng có tuổi thọ dài hơn.
