Vietnamese Government visits LEC to develop teaching and training opportunities
Several representatives from the Vietnamese Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment visited LEC at the end of August to explore the development of research and training opportunities across catchment management.
The four-day trip by the Vietnamese government was organised by British Water - a trade association for the UK water industry supply chain.
Senior Government representatives met with LEC catchment scientists engaged in understanding water quality, modelling tropical hydrology and visualising uncertain food risks. Opportunities for training and Professional Development were explored by the Enterprise and Business Partnerships team. The group also visited field sites in the Eden Catchment and looked at practical work underway to improve water quality via the MOPS (Mitigation options for Phosphorus and Sediment) and PEDAL (Delivery of Phosphorus from Agricultural Sources to Watercourses) Projects.
