Water is one of our most precious natural resources, it is essential for life and survival on the Earth. Water, however, is also a cause of human health problems when it is contaminated, or because of natural hazards resulting from water such as storms, floods, and so on. Water is a renewable natural source thanks to its circulation. Unfortunately, water is not an endless source to meet human needs anytime, and anywhere. Therefore, water has been being the cause of disagreements which is increasingly fierce, and can lead to conflicts or war.

Our country is located in the tropical monsoon, with an average annual rainfall of 1500-2000 mm. The average annual rainfall is about 650 billion cubic meters. However, the distribution of rainfall in our country is uneven in space and time. The mountainous areas normally gets much more rain than the lowlands; The difference between heavy rainfall areas and small rainfall ones is 5-6 times.

However, the current use of water in Vietnam is not economized. In many places, people still consider water as an endless source and the risks of water shortage have not been foreseen, especially in the situation of current climate change and environmental pollution is now a burning issue.
