Project Title:
Building a “Plastic Action Network” and Linkages with Government, local businesses, Youth and Women to Reduce-Reuse-Recycle (3Rs) Plastic Waste in Vietnam
Ha Long city, Quang Ninh province, Vietnam
36 months (April 2018 – April 2021)
Building a “Plastic Action Network” and Linkages with Government, local businesses, Youth and Women to Reduce-Reuse-Recycle (3Rs) Plastic Waste in Vietnam, grant requested funding from Coca-Cola foundation. In context, Vietnam’s rapid economic growth and urbanization have directly increased solid waste generation. Over 30 million tons of waste is produced in Vietnam annually, a third coming from urban areas. Only 10% of all waste is recovered for recycling or reuse. Of the 450 landfills, it is estimated that 80-85% pose an environmental risk causing pollution of air soil, groundwater and waterways from inadequately managed contaminated water and waste. The situation is especially critical in Vietnam’s coastal areas, coastal cities and river banks, where most of Vietnam’s population, especially the poor, increasingly live and comes into contact with plastic waste. Vietnam has been listed as one of the top 5 countries contributing to the world’s unmanaged plastic waste entering the ocean, with an estimated 2,500 tons of plastic waste discharged across Vietnam daily.
