Description

The report and recommendation of the president for the proposed Low Carbon Agricultural Support Project in Viet Nam describes the project terms and conditions for the approval of the Board of Directors of ADB.

The project will reduce pollution from agricultural waste by using climate-smart agricultural waste management practices (CSAWMP). It will process agricultural and rural household wastes into clean energy and bio-slurry, and disseminate, strengthen, and diversify the knowledge base for the application of CSAWMP. This will create a healthier environment and improve livelihoods in the 10 target provinces of Bac Giang, Ben Tre, Binh Dinh, Ha Tinh, Lao Cai, Nam Dinh, Phu Tho, Soc Trang, Son La, and Tien Giang.
