Clean Air, Green City – USAID

Project Title:
Clean Air Green City
Location:
Ba Dinh district and Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi, Vietnam
Period:
12 months (11/2017-11/2018)

The project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Centre for Supporting Green Development GreenHub will be one of three main partners of the project, responsible for promoting waste management and energy technology initiatives. GreenHub will facilitate youth- and women-led initiatives in waste management and waste to energy technology: The current practices (using coal energy  for food preparation, pig farming and daily cooking in traditional cook-stoves and small boilers in handicraft villages) in Hanoi also cause serious air pollution, unnecessary carbon emissions and health impacts, especially for poor women, the direct users of cook-stoves. GreenHub will introduce safer and low-emission options and provide technical and financial support to enable business growth, technology improvement, and adoption.

Activities:

  • Conduct surveys and meetings with local communities to assess the needs and with relevant stakeholders to review and select appropriate interventions (women groups).
  •  Organize at least 2 events to run the contest on improved cookstoves with low emission, applying waste to energy.
  • Design the model(s) and marketing materials.
  •  Supporting 140 small business and households using bee-hive cookstoves to switch to other environmentally friendly stoves.
