Finalised Projects


Project Link IWAS

International Water Research Alliance Saxony Management of Water Resources in Hydrologically Sensitive World Regions

Within IWAS, specific solutions to particular water-related problems in five regions around the world under the concept of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) are developed. [more...]


Project Link WISDOM

Water Information System for a Sustainable Development of the Mekong Delta

Due to a strong population increase, changing climatic conditions and regulatory measures at the upper reaches of the Mekong, the delta is subject to severe changes. [more...] HCMC

Project Link HCMC

Integrative Urban and Environmental Planning Framework - Adaptation to Climate Change for Ho Chi Minh City

It is the aim of the project to develop adaptation strategies and planning systems for the climate efficient development of HCMC. [more...]


Project Link SANSED

Closing nutrient cycles in Decentralised Water Treatment Systems

Subjects of the project in the field of sewage are investigations relating to the development of decentralized sewage treatment and the reuse of nutrientrich and hygienically harmless fertilizers in agriculture and in the field of drinking water studies for the development of decentralized water treatment plants. [more]

Register of contaminated sites in Vietnam

Project Link Register of contaminated sites in Vietnam

Scientific Fundamentals for the Management of Contaminated Sites in Vietnam

In Vietnam, former industrialization and today's industrial production have caused contaminated sites. A successful remediation requires a systematic registration of the contaminated sites. [more]


Project Link IWRM

Integrated Water Ressources Management

The project is aimed at developing an IWRM concept for an integrated assessment and analysis of water management in river and subriver basins (water demand, water resources, water and land use) and for problem analysis, planning, and decision making. [more]



Solutions for Semi-Centralised Supply and Disposal Systems in Urban Areas

Sewage treatment in Vietnam is characterized by a lack of waste water treatment plants in urban and rural areas. Under the buildings, septic tanks are frequently installed for the collection of domestic waste water and for the sedimentation of solid matter. [more]


Project Link TAPIOCA

Treatment of Tapioca Processing Industrial Wastewater and Sustainable Water - Pollution Control Management of Key Economic Zones

The treatment of tapioca wastewater is the main task of the experimental component in the project. A pilot plant will be installed, operated and optimized in a midsize tapioca company in the Tay Ninh province. [more]


Project Link RAME

Mining and Environment Vietnam

Hardcoal mining in the province Quang Ninh is taking place for more than 130 years. Currently, about 95 % of the national hard coal production comes from the province, managed by the state-owned VINACOMIN group. [more...]


Project Link AKIZ

Integrated Wastewater Concept for Industrial Zones for tropical transformation and developing countries exemplified at the Industrial Zone Tra Noc, Can Tho City

Vietnam has about 200 registered industrial zones (IZ), without sustainable wastewater concepts. A "Flagship Project" is proposed for the IZ Tra Noc, Can Tho City. [more...]


Project Link INHAND

Integrated Water Management Concept for Craft Villages

Vietnam's rapid economic growth during the last two decades was accompanied by the formation of numerous industrial zones. [more...]


Project Link LUCCI

Land Use and Climate Change Interactions in the Vu Gia Thu Bon River Basin, Central Vietnam

A major concern of future land use strategies is to balance the requirements of the local communities directly depending on natural resources with the demand of the international community to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. [more...]



Environmental and Water Protection Technologies of Coastal Zones in Vietnam

The focus of the research project is the Thi Vai river landscape and the Can Gio Mangrove Forest in South Vietnam. The selected survey sites are situated in three provinces: Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai und Ba Ria - Vung Tau. [more...]


Project Link REMON

Real-Time Monitoring of Urban Transport - Solutions for Transport Management and Urban Planning in Hanoi

Like many other cities in development countries, Hanoi suffers from severe traffic congestion due to its fast urbanization and the booming motorization since the early 1990s.[more...]


Project Link NaViTex

Concept Development for Textile Wastewater Treatment in Vietnam using Photocatalytic Oxidation with Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles

Effluents from textile plants are highly toxic and hard to treat by conventional wastewater treatment plants. Since a couple of years, Vietnam is one of the fastest growing countries. [more...]


Project Link TRAIN@MINE

Internationalising of Training in the Mining Sector to Ensure Sustainability in Resource Management

Vietnam like most countries with large resource potentials, has a high demand for qualified labour. Despite the large number of workforce available, there is a significant shortage in skilled workforce. [more...]
