Integrating resources for reduction of ocean waste in Phu Quy and Tuy Phong districts, Phan Thiet City, Binh Thuan Province.
Integrating resources for reduction of ocean waste in Phu Quy and Tuy Phong districts, Phan Thiet City, Binh Thuan Province.
The project is aimed at the following objectives and results:
o Overall objective :
- Up to 2022, all stakeholders from local authorities, social organizations, businesses and communities in Phan Thiet city, Tuy Phong and Phu Quy districts will enhance awareness, change behaviors for sorting waste at sources. Single-use plastic products, non-biodegradable plastic bags will be decreased (towards no plastic bags and single-use plastic products) by implementation of policies and activities on reducing waste flows from the land and on-the-sea operation into the environment.
o Specific objectives :
- Capacity is improved and awareness raised about integrated domestic waste management and zero ocean plastic waste.
- Models on integrated domestic waste management and pilot ocean plastic waste reduction are implemented in three districts/cities: Phan Thiet, Phu Quy and Tuy Phong in Binh Thuan province.
- Solutions for integrated domestic waste management and zero marine plastic wastes in Phan Thiet city and Tuy Phong & Phu Quy districts are proposed/recommended.
o Specific expected results include:
i. Capacity improved and awareness raised about integrated domestic waste management and zero ocean plastic waste.
- A group of communicators on domestic waste management trained and operated to coordinate waste reduction and zero marine plastic waste movements and programmes in the localities of Phan Thiet city, Phu Quy and Tuy Phong districts.

+ A manually composting work station is established at the landfill and operated by the Public Works Management Board.
+ The Pro-poor Women Fund is effectively operated to support poor women in the commune
iii. Solutions for integrated domestic waste management and zero marine plastic waste in Phan Thiet city and Tuy Phong & Phu Quy districts are proposed/recommended, specifically:
- A Decision is in place to issue the Plan for Integrated Management of Domestic Waste and Marine Plastic Waste in Phu Quy, Tuy Phong districts and Phan Thiet city.
- Plans and regulations are issued on integrated management of plastic wastes from fishing ships and tourism vessels in Binh Thuan province.
