According to Prof. Dr. Phạm Thị Hương Lan – the Director of the Institute of Hydrology, Environment and Climate Change of TLU, currently, students who choose to study Hydrology Programs are limited, but the demand for engineers in this field more and more increases.  The professor hopes that this cooperation will be an opportunity for the two sides to develop qualified human resources at doctorate, master, and engineer programs. In addition, training should be associated with practice, application of advanced technologies in flood forecasting, natural disaster prevention etc., contributing to ensuring social security.

Hydrological Administration a lot in training, scientific research and practical application. In order put the content of MoU into practice, in the coming time, the two sides will make a joint implementation plan. The Vietnam Meteorological and Hydrological Administration is expected to propose a number of small projects with reasonable funding so that students can participate in research and development of expertise in forecasting, warning and response with natural disasters.

Prof. Dr. Trần Hồng Thái – the General Director of Meteorological and Hydrological Administration speaking

Comprehensive cooperation between Meteorological and Hydrological Administration and TLU is a logical step of the two sides in the context of ongoing complicated natural disasters and climate change. In order for all contents to be carried out and implemented in a timely manner, National Center for Hydrometeorological Forecasting - Meteorological and Hydrological Administration and Training Department - TLU will be the representatives to implement the plans.
