Eco-industrial Park Intervention in Viet Nam - Perspective from Global Eco-Industrial Parks Programme
The project is expected to achieve 2 main results:
Outcome 1: Encourage the development and integration of eco-industrial parks in relevant mechanisms, policies and regulations
With the support of many donors, including GEF, SECO and UNIDO, Vietnam has achieved many important results in the development of mechanisms and policies to support the development of the eco-industrial park model. The results on mechanisms and policies need to be promoted through the development of circulars and documents guiding the implementation of this model according to the provisions of Decree 82/2018/ND-CP.
Outcome 2: Identify and implement eco-industrial park opportunities to bring environmental benefits (such as resource productivity), economic and social benefits to businesses.
The project focuses on supporting the transformation of industrial zones in order to: (i) ensure specific goals and outcomes within a given timeframe, financial and organizational resources, and (ii) be consistent with the governments policies. UNIDO environment and social security book.
Two typical industrial zones selected in Vietnam include Amata (Dong Nai) and Deep C (Hai Phong). These are industrial parks that are highly appreciated in the global eco-industrial park framework, with a lot of potential for improvement with certain support from the project. After being intervened, these industrial zones will become model points for other industrial parks in the country to study, conduct, and learn from experience.
On the basis of applying tools to select eco-industrial parks, Hiep Phuoc Industrial Park (Ho Chi Minh City) was researched and selected because of its potential for improvement. “Intensive” interventions to be carried out at this industrial park include: assessment of RECPs, identification and implementation of industrial symbiosis, and capacity building activities and technical cooperation. . In addition, the project continues to support the development of industrial symbiosis networks identified within the GEF-SECO-funded eco-industrial park project at the enterprise level and the industrial zone level in the industrial zones. Industrial Park Hoa Khanh (Da Nang) and Tra Noc 1&2 (Can Tho). The project also carried out many other industrial park capacity building activities of interest to increase awareness of eco-industrial parks in other industrial zones across the country.
