Environment
The industrialization of Vietnam's society has led to increased industrial wastes that are improperly treated and disposed of.1 Rivers are being heavily polluted, as well as the air.2 Cement factories are causing air pollution that is three times that of government air standards.3 Rapid population growth causes ecological degradation when trees are torn down to make way for larger cities.4 Lack of public awareness makes implementing any government reforms exceedingly difficult.5 Vietnam is working with the USAID to support clean energy initiatives across the country, which will reduce the total carbon emissions in the air and help reduce the effects of climate change.6
