Vietnam is among five countries in the world that account for nearly 60% of the ocean’s plastic pollution. Plastic pollution exacerbates the impacts of climate change as it harms marine life, disrupting life-sustaining ecosystems. Vietnam’s rapid growth has also caused various environmental pollution challenges, largely spurred by agriculture, transportation, and industrial production. USAID supports Vietnam to address these challenges in targeted areas through a collective impact approach while demonstrating benefits to public health, employment, and sustainable economic growth.
