Action month on environment to be launched

09 May 2018 | 01:55:00 PM

An action month on environmental protection will be launched in June under the theme “Resolving pollution caused by plastic and nylon” as part of activities to mark World Environment Day on June 5.

The launch ceremony will be organised by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) on June 4 in the central province of Binh Dinh. 


An action month for the environment will be launched next month with the theme “Resolving pollution caused by plastic and nylon”

The action month will have three focuses, including conducting measures to protect natural resources and the environment, preventing natural calamity and adapting to climate change, and treating waste with a focus on plastics.

Ministries, provinces and cities, organisations and enterprises across the country will aim to exploit and use water resources effectively, especially inter-national water resources such as the Mekong River. They will strictly obey regulations related to forest protection and maintaining biodiversity.

They will collect and treat plastic waste and strictly punish violators based on Decree 38 issued in 2015 and Circular 36 issued in 2015 by the MONRE.

From now until the end of July, all provinces and cities across the country will conduct a series of actions to respond to the month, including a campaign urging people to reject single-use plastic materials and a drive to clean up channels and ponds. Training courses on environmental protection will be organised. All of the activities aim at encouraging people to break the habit of using plastic products and nylon bags and to stop littering.

Ministries will give instructions to enterprises to check all their risks related to environmental pollution, and set up plans for improving environmental problems in manufacturing. Specialised teams on environmental protection should be set up to implement a process for collecting and treating waste.
