Strengthening Water Health capacity

Among the arising developmental challenges in the recent years, water pollution emerges as a more common and serious problem for Vietnamese well-being.  Despite encouraging efforts and results made by several Vietnamese local organizations, solutions for water pollution remain scattered, small-scale, and largely ineffective. Vietnam localworks for Environmental Health Program aims to both empower local capacity and strengthen local organization partnerships to best-practically and sustainably address environmental health challenges through a learning-by-doing model. The Program starts with water pollution in Thanh Hoa province.

This workshop is a chance for localworks’ members to review the Program’s activities and their results, as well as to strengthen the members’ capacity to better tackle water challenges.
