The Swiss government has granted a SFr. 50 million credit to be used by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, SDC, in a broad-based action programme aimed at assisting flood-stricken regions in Europe and Asia.
The recent floods have cost many lives and devastated infrastructure and housing in Europe and Asia. In response, on 22 August the Swiss government approved a supplementary credit of SFr. 50 million on behalf of the flood victims.

Concern is growing as the threat of major floods in the Mekong Delta increases. In south Vietnam, water levels are rising rapidly - between 5-10 cms a day and reaching emergency levels in some areas.
National authorities are in the process of evacuating thousands of people from the area, and have mobilised thousands of soldiers to help with the mitigation measures and relief preparations.
