Research Proposal on the Water Crisis in Vietnam


Organisms on Earth must have water in order to survive; however, too much water may lead to other problems which make it difficult to survive. Many people either do not have an interest in understanding what problems Vietnam is facing, or do not feel that Vietnam is a major topic of their interest. The truth is, although the problems that Vietnam faces in its water crisis is very similar to other countries worldwide. This information will be listed throughout the paper along with ways that Vietnam is improving on these issues.


The audience for this paper is the United States Department of Agriculture, along with many other organizations in the United States that are interested in international news, those individuals who live in Vietnam or have family in Vietnam, and those individuals who have an interest in knowing and understanding what is going on in the world around them.

Past Research on Topic

[Students in Comp I online: Try to assess and make brief statements about what has been written on the topic you are researching, and list the types of analysis others have written. The student in this proposal did this section incorrectly.] I do not have any past experience in research of any water crisis or Vietnam. I just have a strong interest in learning more about the country and the problems that are occurring there because I have many friends who are from Vietnam. My research will enter the controversy by explaining the current water crisis in Vietnam from an outsider’s prospective.

Statement of Problem

Currently, there are many instances of drought and flooding occurring in Vietnam. This topic is of national and global importance because, even though these problems are occurring in Vietnam, they are also occurring in many other countries worldwide. When it is understood how to handle these problems in Vietnam, other countries, that are witnessing these same problems, will understand how to fix the problems.

Proposed Study

There is currently an increase in total rainfall in Vietnam, but there has been a decrease in the rainfall during the dry season lately. Vietnam is a very poor country and many have suffered from proper nutrition and health because of a poor economy. It will be stated how the water crisis affects the Vietnamese, especially poor individuals within the country. Many possible solutions will be explained along with how their progress has been for helping fix these problems that have occurred.


To analyze the water crises that are currently occurring in Vietnam, I will begin by answering the following questions:

· What are the current water crises that are occurring today in Vietnam?

· How did these issues arise?

· What has been done to correct these issues?

· How has been affected by these issues?

· Are any governmental regulations helping correct these problems?

· Are other countries doing anything to assist Vietnam in fixing these issues?

· What ways have done the most work fixing these problems?

· Are other problems arising due to these issues that are unrelated to water?

· What are some of the recent major impacts from these problems?

· Are schools and children being affected by these problems?


The primary sources I plan to use will be articles found of the library databases provided by the University of Toledo’s libraries. The secondary sources, the major, I plan to use will come from articles that have been found from the reliable sources that were provided by the professor, which I will then analyze before inserting into the report.

My Qualifications

As stated before my only qualification in this research is an interest in learning more about what is occurring in Vietnam because of personal ties to the country. I also have an interest in learning about how current water problems are being corrected because many of the same problems occur in different countries.


Water is an important substance needed for life. Since I have never researched water issues before and how it has resolved, it is a great assignment for the readers and me to understand a problem that sounds simple, but can be very difficult to solve. By doing this assignment on Vietnam, that is a very poor country, it is important to see how it is correcting these issues. It is beneficial in case these problems ever occur in another country. If Vietnam can correct these problems without many resources, it should be simple for larger, wealthier countries to also correct these issues the same way. With your approval, I will continue my research and any suggestions are appreciated.
