The Asian Development Bank (ADB) Low Carbon Farming Support Project (LCASP), funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), has been implemented since 2013 to not only contribute to raising economic efficiency in livestock production in Binh Dinh Province. DA is also an effective solution to reduce environmental pollution in rural areas.

Increase income, reduce pollution

Over the past years, the livestock industry of Binh Dinh province has developed quite strongly, contributing considerably to the socio-economic development and improvement of the farmers' life. However, most livestock waste is discharged directly into the environment which has bad impact on the production life of people. Participating in the LCASP project for the livestock sector in Vietnam is a good condition to help Binh Dinh overcome this shortcoming.

Binh Dinh is one of the localities where project implementation results are highly appreciated by the Central LCASP Board. The PMU has selected and organized training on technical standards of biogas plants for construction workers and plumbers; Training on safe waste management; Operate and use biogas works for farmers registered in the locality of Binh Dinh province.

From 2014 to now, the project has supported the construction and installation of 4,458 biogas works for the people, surpassing 885 works compared to the central plan, of which 2,595 will be built in 2015. Most of the biogas works put into operation are promoting positive effects, contributing to reducing environmental pollution, helping people develop livestock in the direction of safety and sustainability.

According to the LCASP Project Management Board of Binh Dinh Province (DARD), the demand for construction of biogas plants in rural areas in Binh Dinh province is very high, always surpassing MARD's plan to allocate annual quantity of biogas plants. Therefore, project management boards and people's committees of districts, towns and cities have prioritized the selection of households with large livestock herds, the need to build a real biogas works to support the construction of the project.

According to the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Binh Dinh province has the second biggest cattle and poultry in the Central and Highlands. However, the livestock industry in Binh Dinh is still developing spontaneously, on a small scale. It is worth mentioning that the farmer built barns in the residential area, most of animal waste is not processed directly discharged into the environment, causing environmental pollution, increasing the risk of disease for the population. Cattle, poultry and humans. Many farmers have built farms for intensive livestock production, but the treatment of animal waste is difficult due to lack of funding, processing technology, has been and is urgent raising farmers.

Without a project to support low carbon agriculture, most of the untreated livestock waste is discharged directly into the environment, polluting the environment.

Since being assisted by the LCASP Project for the construction of biogas works, wastes and wastewater are processed into a cleaner, cleaner environment. Farmers save money on gas and other fuels.

In addition, the movement of livestock breeding has developed so that livestock waste is very large. Implementation of LCASP is a favorable condition for addressing environmental pollution in rural areas. Most of the biogas works put into operation are promoting positive effects, contributing to reducing environmental pollution, helping people develop livestock in the direction of safety and sustainability. The biogas plants also create clean energy sources, improve livelihoods and improve the quality of life of rural people.

Continue to support

DA LCASP is headed by MARD, from 2013 to 2018 in Lao Cai, Son La, Phu Tho, Bac Giang, Nam Dinh, Ha Tinh, Binh Dinh, Tien Giang, Ben Tre and Soc. The moon has four components: animal waste management; Credit for biogas value chains; Transfer of low carbon agricultural production technology; DA management. Total project implementation capital is US $ 84 million, of which ADB loans are US $ 74 million.

Particularly in Binh Dinh province, the total capital of the project is over USD 1,915 million. Of which, ADB loans $ 1.742 million, provincial reciprocal capital 173.500 USD. The objective of the project is to build a sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly agricultural production; Create clean energy; Improve livelihoods and improve the quality of life of rural people.

According to the LCASP Project Management Board for Binh Dinh, for the period 2013-2018, MARD has been allocated to 10 participating provinces, each of which has implemented 3,600 biogas plants, but only in 2014 and 2015, Binh Dinh Province has built 4,175 biogas works were built, exceeding the plan. In the first 6 months of 2016, the whole province built 1,184 biases.

Through the use of biogas technology supported by the Low Carbon Agriculture Support Program, animal waste is disposed of, providing clean and inexpensive energy to farmers.

It is known that from now until the end of 2016, the project management board will continue to promote information and propaganda on comprehensive management of animal waste; Selection of households participating in the project and organizing training on methods of operating biogas works and animal waste management. The DA will support about 916 households registered to build small scale biogas works, ensuring that 2016 will complete 2,100 works. The project management board also integrates the project activities with the livestock development programs of Binh Dinh Province in association with the new rural construction, ensuring the comprehensive management of animal waste.

At the same time, the Project Management Board will also instruct the technical staff of the project to well advise the farmers on biogas technology suitable to the terrain and scale of animal husbandry; Supervision and acceptance of biogas works to meet the standards of the project; To inspect and supervise the environmental and quality criteria of the biogas plants which have already been constructed and are operating.

Through the use of biogas technology supported by the LCASP project, animal waste is disposed of, providing clean and inexpensive energy to the farmers, contributing to the protection of the public health, creating additional work. To work in rural areas and reduce the use of fossil fuels, reducing deforestation.
