USAID/Vietnam fosters collective action by all local community members and actors (Government of Vietnam, the private sector, social organizations, and citizens) to address environmental issues, improve environmental management, and become responsible for solving their own environmental health issues. By engaging local communities, USAID/Vietnam contributes to Vietnam's ownership of its prosperity, quality of life and sustainable, green economic growth. Current projects focus on reducing air pollution, plastic waste management, water conservation and other environmental health issues.
