IHE Delft, in collaboration with Dutch firm The Salt Doctors and Can Tho University in Vietnam, recently participated in a knowledge transfer project centred on saline agriculture in the Mekong Delta.
As a rising sea level and longer dry periods threaten the world’s fresh water resources in coastal areas, the resulting increase in soil salinity poses a threat to global food production. So how do you cultivate enough food to feed an exponentially growing population in a sustainable way? Saline agriculture offers a powerful solution.
