(12:05:33 PM 29/07/2015)
(Tinmoitruong.vn) - Mr. Tran Kim Long, Director of International Cooperation Department, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), and Mrs. Kirsten Hegener and Mr. Christian Henckes, Deputy Directors of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, signed the Implementation Agreements for two new Technical Cooperation programmes:

1) The Programme on Conservation and Sustainable Use of Forest Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in Viet Nam (Bio-Forest Programme), and 2) the Phase II of the Integrated Coastal Management Programme (ICMP Phase II). Both programmes are funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with counterpart funds from the Vietnamese Government. The ICMP is co-financed by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). These two programmes reflect the common commitment of the Governments of Viet Nam, Germany and Australia towards sustainable development and will complement the on-going Technical and Financial Cooperation programmes in the Sector.

Technical Cooperation programmes supported by the German Government provide direct inputs in the form of expert advice to develop the capacities of people, organizations, networks and societies.

The Bio-Forest Programme aims to create important prerequisites for the conservation and the sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services of forests at the national level and thereby contribute to the implementation of Viet Nam’s Green Growth Strategy. The Programme will focus on improving the relevant legal framework, strengthening institutional capacities, and implementing international initiatives. The total budget for the programme is

up to EUR 4.95 million, of which EUR 4.5 million (equivalent to VND 139,659,300,000) are granted by Germany, and EUR 450,000 (equivalent to VND 12,696,300,000) are provided by the Vietnamese Government. The programme is jointly implemented by GIZ and the Vietnamese Department of Nature Conservation (DONC) under MARD from 2015 to 2018.

The objective of the ICMP Phase II is to enhance institutional, financial and planning capacities to promote a climate-resilient development of the Mekong Delta. The Programme builds on the practical solutions for climate change adaptation implemented by local communities and authorities in provinces of Mekong Delta with the support of the German and Australian Governments since 2007. These include the rehabilitation of mangroves, the

protection of coastal forests, and the development of alternative income opportunities and farming practices for local communities. ICMP applies a multi-sector approach involving a number of provinces and ministries. ICMP is jointly implemented by the GIZ, the Management Board for Forestry Projects of MARD, as well as the Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) and the Provincial People’s Committees of the five

provinces (An Giang, Bac Lieu, Ca Mau, Kien Giang and Soc Trang). ICMP Phase II will run until August 2017 with a budget of up to EUR 8.8 million (equivalent to VND 209,440,000,000) of which EUR 4.5 million (equivalent to VND 107,100,000,000) are granted by Germany, EUR 3.5 million (equivalent to VND 83,100,000,000) are contributed by the Australian Government, and EUR 800,000 (equivalent to VND 19,040,000,000) provided by the Vietnamese Government.


The GIZ - a federal enterprise commissioned for the implementation of these two Technical Cooperation projects - supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. The GIZ has over 50 years of experience providing technical and management expertise, and operates in more than 130 countries worldwide. The GIZ capitalizes on the lessons-learnt from local projects and the experiences from international initiatives to devise working solutions with national partner institutions. GIZ has been working with its partners in Viet Nam since 1993 and is currently active in three main fields of cooperation: 1) Vocational Training; 2) Environmental Policy and Sustainable Use of Natural Resources; and 3) Energy.

HCM City invests $1.14 billion in flood prevention

(Tinmoitruong.vn) - In the past 10 years, HCM City has invested about VND24.3 trillion (more than $1.14 billion) in flood prevention projects. However, just 1.2% of the total workload of these plans have been completed so their effectiveness is beyond expectation.
