FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific organized the fourth regional coordination group (RCG) meeting on the Livestock Waste Management in East Asia Project (GCP/RAS/215/WBG) from 15 to 16 February 2009 in Vung Tau, Vietnam. The RCG meeting is intended to provide high-level oversight of the project, to promote institutional buy-in and to discuss livestock waste management issue.

RCG members from China, Thailand, Vietnam and the Regional Facilitation Office (RFO) attended the meeting. The countries' representatives presented a project progress in their countries to the meeting. The RFO showed the progress of Decision Support Tools development and an annual work plan for 2009. The RCG members made additional recommendations to the project implementation and approved the work plan for 2009.

Prior to the meeting, the RCG members visited Tien Phong Pig Husbandry Association, Cu Chi district, Ho Chi Minh city. The association included of 14 members, all together has 4,000 sows in the commune, aims to provide "green pork" to the market. The members meet once a month to exchange the idea of pig price, market and technology. The RCG visited 3 farms in the association. The first farm is a small farm with 100 sows where the owner is a pioneer in electric generator from the biogas. The second farm is the medium farm with feed mill and long-shaped cover lagoon. The last farm is the earthworm station. The owner produces the vermiculture fertilizer from pig and cattle manure. He gains a high income from this business. The RCG members were really interested and impressed by the works of this association.

The RFO would like to thank all RCG members, Vietnam PMO, MARD HCMC and Tien Phong Pig Husbandry Association for their kind cooperation. We also would like to thank Dr. Huynh Thuy for her kind technical contribution and arrangement through out our mission in Vietnam.
