The Red River Delta Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Project started in 2006, to provide clean water and sanitation facilities, and to educate communities on good hygiene behavior in 4 provinces: Hai Duong, Ninh Binh, Nam Dinh and Thai Binh. Unlike similar projects, communities actively planned, raised funds and supervised the projects, taking full responsibility through the creation of a company which manages the system in more sustainable way. The government’s partnership with the World Bank was funded with around US$110 million, and due to its success, additional financing has been provided to expand and scale up successful experiences to a whole Government National Target Program, targeting 240 communes in 8 other provinces using a new financing instrument called the Program for Results or PforR. This is expected to benefit more than 1.7 more residents in the Red River Delta.
The ODTA team is using the Georesults visualization tool to display images, videos and results stories of the project as the activities are taking place. Georesults helps to enhance transparency in project activities as it allows stakeholders and other interested parties to explore a project from a local perspective. This online space features an interactive map and a photo set with the before and after pictures of different project locations.
