In close coordination with the Government of Vietnam and other donors, USAID supports the environmental remediation of dioxin contamination at the Danang Airport, where Agent Orange was stored during the Vietnam War. Working in close partnership with the Government of Vietnam, USAID completed an environmental assessment in June 2010 and is engaged in carrying out the engineering and design work for the remediation activities. The Vietnamese Government has completed its own environmental impact assessment and has also completed unexploded ordnance clearance at the Danang Airport site. As a part of the strong partnership, in 2012 the U.S. Government began work at Danang and is committed to building Vietnamese capacity to address environmental remediation beyond Danang.
