Viet Nam

Approval date: 12 Sep 2006

Actual EOD - NTE: 01 Sep 2006 - 31 Aug 2011

Objectives:  The objective of the project is to reduce the negative local and global environmental impacts of rapidly increasing livestock production in selected watersheds in the coastal areas of China, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The project will support an integrated and comprehensive approach to managing animal-induced pollution.

The main elements of the approach will be:

The development of functional decision support tools and methodologies for use by the public and private sector;

The addressing, through a regional project, of different stages of economic and institutional development, so that replicability throughout the Asia region is facilitated;

The test of both prevention and mitigation measures; and

The creation of a policy dialogue among stakeholders and enabling policymakers to evaluate the cost-benefits and cost-effectiveness of various policy and technical environmental management options.

The proposed GEF project will strengthen institutional capacity and decision-making systems for industrial livestock management at the central and provincial levels in China, Thailand, and Vietnam.
