Members

Dr Tran Tan Van

Dr. Tran Tan Van is currently the Director of Viet Nam Vetiver Network (VNVN).  As Director of the Vietnam Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources (VIGMR) in Vietnam, he is in charge of recommendations for natural disaster mitigation.

Since being introduced to Vetiver Systems six years ago, he has become not only an excellent practitioner of Vetiver Systems, but also a strategic leader, as coordinator of the Vetiver Network in Vietnam (VNVN). In these six years he contributed enormously to the widespread adoption of Vetiver Systems in Vietnam, now in nearly 40 out of the 64 provinces, promoted by different ministries, NGOs, and companies. His introduction of Vetiver Systems started with  stabilization of coastal sand  dunes, and now includes flood damage mitigation on coastal and river banks, sea dykes, anti-salinity dykes and river dykes, protection of slopes and roadsides against erosion and landslides, and applications to mitigate soil and water pollution. He was awarded the prestigious prize of Vetiver Champion by The Vetiver Network International in 2006 at the Fourth International Vetiver Conference in Caracas, Venezuela.
