To aptly organize for the response events, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) hosted a meeting in Hanoi on March 5 to discuss plans for observing World Water Day (March 22) and World Meteorological Day (March 23) in 2019.

Accordingly, the activities set to be organized include the launching ceremony to respond to World Water Day and Vietnam International Water Week 2019 as well as scientific seminars and communication activities in Hanoi.

At local level, the MONRE proposed that the local People's Committees direct their Departments of Natural Resources and Environment to preside over and coordinate with relevant units to develop plans to organise appropriate activities to respond to World Water Day 2019, featuring meetings and parades on World Water Day, launching campaigns to clean the environment, and organising scientific seminars and exhibitions on water resources topics, while increasing the time of broadcasting on water and water source protection.

In addition to organising World Water Day, MONRE also plans to organise World Meteorological Day, with the launching ceremony to respond to the World Meteorological Day in 2019 to be held at the Hydro-meteorological Station of the Northeast region in Hai Phong city on March 23, an exchange programme on the theme of journalism with hydro-meteorological work on the same day, and field trips to a range of hydro-meteorological stations.

The ministry also encourages the organization of response activities in localities, with a focus on disseminating information on natural disaster prevention and control for local students.
