The objective is to reduce the solid waste generated in Vietnam and to implement waste segregation

Activities: (2013 - 2020)
As of 2010, approximately 26,000 tons of solid waste was generated daily in Vietnam, with most of it being disposed in open dump sites and unsanitary landfills without prior treatment, highlighting the need to shift to more sustainable practices. The NAMA therefore foresees biological treatment of organic waste through composting and anaerobic digestion, and the recovery, reuse and recycling of inorganic waste.

The phases of the NAMA are:

  • Phase 1 (July 2013 – December 2013): a preparatory stage with key activities, a detailed plan of activities, milestones and priorities, as well as the identification of stakeholders
  • Phase 2 (January 2014 – June 2015): capacity building among local partners, mplementation of at least two pilot projects in cities across Vietnam: one in a centrally controlled municipality and the other in a secondary city or small town
  • Phase 3 (July 2015 – December 2020): full implementation of the NAMA throughout cities in Vietnam

The cost of implementing the measures proposed by the NAMA is estimated at an average minimum investment of USD 110 million per year until 2020 in solid waste treatment facilities. It is proposed that 80% of these investment requirements be met by domestic sources of financing, both public and private, with the remainder coming from international sources.
