The NAMA aims to foster the use of biogas power at pig farms in medium and large-scale farms in rural areas of Vietnam.

Activities: (2016 - 2020)
The NAMA intends to:

  • develop a policy and institutional framework to incentivize investment in commercial biogas-electricity generation at pig farms in Vietnam
  • enhance the development of biogas-electricity generation at pig farm in order to reduce GHG emission and contribute to agricultural sector target which described in the country's National Climate Change Strategy
  • improve pig farm capacity on affection abiding national regulatory standard for waste treatment.

During the implementation phase, assuming that 50% of pig farms will be implemented, it is expected that there will be about 2150 farms installed biogas power generation system with total capacity in 2020 is 215 MW. .

Impact and MRV

Cumulative GHG reductions: 6.51 MtCO2e
Mitigative capacity:

No information has been provided on mitigative capacity


Social: * health benefits
  • reduction of power shortages
  • awareness raising of the community about sanitation, clean technology, greenhouse gas, and renewable energy
  • positive model of animal manure management practice
Economic: * job creation
  • impacts on balance of payments
  • national energy self-sufficiency

•Incremental reduction on the need for new build power plants at a national level •Increasing the income of pig farm •diversification of energy supply

Environmental: * reduction of emissions
  • improvements in local air quality, and control of highly combustible methane emissions
  • reduction in odor
  • control of leach ate

MRV Framework:
No MRV plan has been defined


Finance will be received from three sources: International support, State contribution and Farm owner’s capital. These sources are divided to three types of funding: (1) Grant for program implementation; (2) Investment cost for 2150 systems; and (3) Loan insurance. Apart from the 196.6M$ of financial support, the NAMA will need 215M of technical support as well as 4.6M$ for capacity-building.
