In recent years, Lam Dong's water resources have not only changed in terms of quality and quantity of water, but this has affected the economic, social and living environment in the region. Based on UNEP guidelines, the vulnerability of water resources in the study area has been explored by isolating important issues related to the different functions of the water resource systems in a storage facility. area. At present, the vulnerability index for the river basin in Lam Dong (VI) reaches 0.29 in the river basin with a vulnerability index for medium water resources. Assessing the vulnerability of basin water resources is the basis for scientists to provide appropriate management solutions in the direction of sustainable development.
