This project aims to build capacity of national governments in Asia-Pacific region in implementing green public procurement via the provision of policy consultation and technical assistance tailored to the needs of partner countries. The project will initially support two priority countries in the ASEAN region from 2017 to 2018.
This project supports the institutionalisation and implementation of green public procurement and eco-labelling of ASEAN countries through policy consultation and technical support tailored to the needs of partner countries. The project will initially support two priority countries (Thailand and Viet Nam) in the ASEAN region from 2017 to 2018. The outcomes and lessons learned will be disseminated to other countries in the region with a possible follow-up project covering additional countries.
The project is aim to give best solution for urban sorting waste at sources challenge. Hanoi (vietnam) generates approximately 6000-6500 tons of municipal solid waste per day (2,400,000 tons/year). 10% of MSW is increasingly each year. Each city resident produces around 200kg of waste a year. Only 15% - 20% (260 tons) of recyclable waste (paper, plastic, metal, glass) can be collected daily. The 80% leftovers is dump and landfilled or burned. Project is focus on conlecting more recyclable waste
The project was aimed at combining sustainable public procurement and eco-labelling to stimulate the demand and supply of sustainable products in target countries and regions. It aimed to establish the foundations for the development of successful eco-labelling and SPP policies and supported countries in the design and implementation of effective SPP and eco-labelling action plans.
The project was implemented in a number of different countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia.
In "core countries" with established eco-labelling programmes (Brazil, Vietnam and Colombia), the aim was to implement UNEP’s SPP Approach combined with a proactive use of eco-labels. In other countries with no pre-existing eco-labelling programmes ( Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Mauritius, Togo, Mongolia) the project focused on the development and implementation of SPP policies, together with awareness-raising activities about the opportunities that eco-labels represent for the strengthening of the national SPP programme.
The project aims at upscaling and mainstreaming low-carbon sustainable consumption patterns and behavior amongst employees in offices and business premises. The project targets office employees in 3 areas: service providers, manufacturers and public organizations. The aim is to contribute to key consumption domains (energy, waste, water, chemicals, food), reduce environmental impacts and mitigate climate change in the office setting.
A new approach of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emission through changing lifestyle toward water and electricity saving in urban households in Danang, Vietnam
The project aims to promote water and energy smart lifestyles as an effective strategy towards low carbon development. The project blends research, demonstration and education to motivate residents to act on climate change mitigation by leading a low-impact lifestyle.
IFAD - Project for Adaptation to Climate Change in the Mekong Delta (AMD) in Ben Tre and Tra Vinh Provinces
The project will build the capacity of smallholder
farmers, communities and local institutions to
cope with the impacts of climate change and
expand into sustainable, profitable enterprises.
AMD will target poor communities, specifically
women-headed and ethnic minority
households. Thirty communes located along
a salinity gradient have been selected in
each province to test alternative livelihood
models, based on their poverty ranking and
vulnerability to climate change.
