The project “Building and sharing zero-waste models in selected Asian communities” has chosen Tan Hiep and Cam Thanh communes of Hoi An city (Quang Nam province) for pilot implementation.
Cham Islands (Tan Hiep) and Cam Thanh commune are two tourist attractions of Hoi An city, so they have faced more and more problems of domestic and tourism waste.
The project on building and sharing zero-waste models in selected Asian communities wants to increase the local awareness of environmental protection by diminishing waste, waste management and setting up pilot waste-free communities there.
The project will help the locals take advantage of waste to benefit themselves.
The project will spend about 12 months on the training of monitoring and auditing waste, waste monitoring and brand audit, construction of pilot waste management establishments, setting up a 5-year plan on solid waste management, and improving the capacity of household waste collection.
It is proper to choose Cam Thanh and Tan Hiep for pilot implementation of zero-waste communities because the inhabitants there have accessed to waste management procedures. The project has great significance in the context of waste pressure on Hoi An city at present.
The project “Building and sharing zero-waste models in selected Asian communities” was approved by the Quang Nam provincial People's Committee in March 2020.
It is sponsored by the GreenViet Biodiversity Conservation Center through the Municipal Waste Recycling Program issued by the United States Agency for International Development.
It was implemented in Cam Thanh and Tan Hiep communes of Hoi An city from May 2020 to March 2021.
