About

Environment

Viet Nam developed and approved critical environmental legislation, strategies and plans with active UN support from the drafting to consultation processes. The UN also supported the development of plans for the implementation of Agenda 21 at the local level and the institutionalization of health impact assessments on all development projects that have impacts on the environment. The UN is also actively participating in the promotion of safe water, sanitation and hygiene, where the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation national strategy and NTP were developed and the water supply and sanitation situation steadily improved.

Viet Nam has established a system of protected areas (nature reserves) with active support from the UN. Five areas have been designated as World Heritage Sites (natural and cultural), there are six Man and Biosphere reserves and Viet Nam has assumed an active role in the World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Furthermore, the UN has supported the improvement of community-based environmental-protection in several localities, as well as the promotion of energy conservation and cleaner production in large, small and medium sized enterprises through implementation of the National Action Plan for Cleaner Production and other relevant policies.

In food and agriculture, recent technical assistance has focused particularly on animal and plant health and food safety, including capacity building to comply with requirements under the SPS agreement and to implement Codex Alimentarius standards. Programmes related to agriculture, forestry and fisheries have continued with emphasis on pest management, integrated systems and markets. Integrated rural development programmes aimed at poverty reduction have provided support to smallholder farmers with access to appropriate technology, microfinance, small scale infrastructure, improved skills and institution building.
