NDO - Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has approved a programme to update disaster risk and warning mapping, especially for natural disasters resulting from storms, flash floods, floods, landslides, droughts, and saline intrusion.

The programme aims to assess the risks of natural disasters in each region of Vietnam, with special attention given to annual natural disasters such as typhoons, storm surges, floods, flash floods, landslides, droughts, and saline intrusion.
