The fast development of industrial zones combined with the lack of industrial wastewater management and loose environmental legislation have resulted in severe levels of water pollution in many areas of Vietnam. Despite encouraging efforts and results from several Vietnamese local organizations to mitigate the challenges and to protect the environment in recent years, impact and sustainability of these environmental projects are typically substandard due to weak strategizing, poor networking, limited access to local resources and limited engagement from government authorities. There is an urgent need for a capable network of local organizations that can mobilize available local resources to carry out efficient, impactful, and sustainable work.
The Institute of Population, Health and Development (PHAD) believes that local challenges can only be solved permanently and sustainably by the local communities through empowered local capacity and strengthened partnerships among local organizations. Therefore, PHAD proposes the Vietnam Local Works for Environmental Health program that aims to strengthen local capacity to best-practically and sustainably address developmental challenges through a learning-by-doing model. The program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for 5 years (2017 – 2022). The program starts with water pollution and related health issues in Kim Bang and Binh Luc districts of Ha Nam province, and Nong Cong and Ha Trung districts of Thanh Hoa province.
