With an annual population growth rate of 1.7 percent, Vietnam’s population will increase by one million people each year. Presently, Vietnam is the second most populous country in Southeast Asia with 82 million people, and is expected to have a population of 155 million by the year 2040. As a result, the demand for clean drinking water will be essential.

One of the most pressing environmental concerns of the government is the lack of clean drinking water. According to the Ministry of Construction, there are only 200 of 689 cities providing clean drinking water through 190 central municipal treatment plants.
