New Date for Free Webinar: Wageningen University in Vietnam; A Growing Collaboration



The Netherlands Vietnam Chamber of Commerce invites you to join this webinar on Thursday 29 October, 10:00 – 11:00 hrs

Partly thanks to Wageningen University, the Mekong Delta in Vietnam is a significant exporter of rice, shrimp and tilapia. But salinization and climate change are now forcing a change of course. A Dutch Delta Plan – once again, with input from WUR – is to play an important role in this.

The NVCC would like to invite you to join the free webinar. For registration see below.

Guest speakers:

Prof. Dr. Fulco Ludwig

Professor Ludwig is a multidisciplinary scientist focusing on studying global change impacts and adaptation in relation to water, food and energy resources and natural ecosystems.

Fulco Ludwig did his PhD at Wageningen University focussing and, thereafter, a post-doc at the University of Georgia and at CSIRO in Perth, Australia.
In 2006, he started working at the Co-operative Programme on Water and Climate focussing on linking climate science with the water sector. In 2007, he again joined Wageningen University initially to work as a research scientist and from 2013 as Associate professor.
In December 2016 he was appointed as a professor within the Water Systems and Global Change group.
Within his research programme on water and climate change, Fulco brings together different disciplines to study the global change impacts and adaptation in relation to water, food and energy resources and natural ecosystems. .
Fulco Ludwig contributes to developing integrated future scenarios and climate change adaptation policies and plans. He was for example an advisor for the Mekong delta plan and the Bangladesh Delta Plan. In addition, Fulco Ludwig contributes to a range of capacity development programmes in Asia and Africa. 


Dr. Long Phi Hoang
