As stated in the report, there were totally 36 communication activities carried out by the project and the communication network in 2017, including canal and ditch clean-up campaigns, parade celebrating World Water Day, project dissemination communication, etc. Especially, the propaganda and mobilization of households in site clearance facilitated the implementation of project of "Expansion and reinforcement of Cau Ngoi channel" in the coming time.
