HCMC – Vietnam has broken ground on its first sabo dam in Son La Province.

The dam in Pieng Village, Nam Pam Commune, Muong La District is a collaborative effort between the Vietnam Disaster and Dyke Management Authority, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Son La’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Vietnam Office.

The project aims to enhance the region’s capacity to mitigate and minimize the impact of flash floods and landslides in Vietnam’s northern upland.

The project, initiated in 2022, involves cooperation between the Vietnam Disaster and Dyke Management Authority and JICA across 14 northern upland provinces.

The establishment of the sabo dam in Son La serves as a benchmark for the Government in establishing technical standards for sabo dam design in high-risk areas. This aligns with the Government’s vision outlined in the Disaster Prevention and Irrigation Plan for 2021-2030, with a vision to 2050.
