The project "Developing the community-based plastic waste management in coastal areas of Ha Long Bay Quang Ninh province" (VNM/SGP/OP6/Y4/CORE/2019/06) has been implemented by Quang Ninh Provincial Farmers' Association since December 2019. The project is aimed at mobilizing all communities living in the coastal areas of Ha Long Bay to participate voluntarily and actively in collecting plastic waste and mitigating environmental pollution from plastic waste in Ha Long Bay; consequently protecting the human health and the Ha Long Bay ecosystem. Specific project activities include: - Raising the community’s awareness on plastic waste (PW); enhancing the capacity of local staff and core members of social and political organizations on PW management, classification, collection and processing; changing behaviors in using plastic products. - Contributing to the reduction of PW and environmental pollution by implementing various models of plastic waste collection groups, self-managed groups of plastic waste collection and classification at source by 3R criteria (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) - Making recommendations and proposals to governments on solutions, policy mechanisms in management, mitigation and disposal of plastic waste.
