II. General situation

1. Organization, apparatus.

- The Management Board of the project "Low Carbon Agriculture" in Son La province was established under the Decision No. 427 / QĐ-SNN dated June 24, 2013 of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development with 6 participants, in Two full-time and four part-time, led by the deputy director of the project director. The Project Management Board has its own account and uses the legal status of the Department of Agriculture to operate, with the function and task of implementing management and monitoring activities according to the content of the feasibility report. The project was approved by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development in Decision No. 2435 / NĐ-BNN-HTQT dated 09 October 2012; And Decision No. 1995 / QD-UBND dated 10 September 2013 approving the Master Plan for Action to be implemented in Son La of the Asian Bank for Agriculture Project (ADB) In Son La province and Decision No. 563 / QĐ-UBND dated 14/3/2016 of the Chairman of Son La People's Committee on Adjustment of the Master Plan for the Project "Support to Low Carbon Agriculture", Implementation Assurance According to the target, object, progress and content of the plan.

2. The main advantages and disadvantages in the implementation process.

Asian. Advantage.

- The project has the support, high consensus of all levels, branches, localities and people in the province.

- The attention and direction of the Central Project Management Board, the provincial People's Committee and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in the activities of the unit.

B. Difficult.

- Technicians in the district work part-time should partly affect the implementation at the facilities.

- Son La is a poor province, the budget is mainly central so the counterpart fund for the project activities are difficult.

- Currently, in Son La province, there are many units involved in supplying biogas with composite materials not included in the project regulations. These works were heavily installed by farmers because of the much lower cost of construction than those of the same size as the companies authorized by the LCASP Central Project Management Board to provide work to the public.

- The number of households that have built / installed biogas plants compared to the number of livestock households

There are 2,871 works / 33,349 households in the whole province, of which LCASP is 1,542, 1,329 others. The reason is that many livestock households are concentrated in separate grazing areas (away from the residential area) so there is no need to build / install the works.

- On 13 May 2015, the People's Committee of Son La province issued Decision No. 13/2015 / QD-UBND detailing the implementation of Point b, Clause 3, Article 6 of Decision No. 50/2014 / QD. -TTg dated September 4, 2014 by the Prime Minister on policies to support the raising of farmer productivity in the period of 2015-2020 in Son La province Supporting construction / installation of biogas plant (Biogas) 5 million / 1 works higher than the support level of the project (project 3 million / project). So many farmers registered to build / install biogas plant, some digging pit stopped and wait for higher support level.

- Credit component 2, Agricultural Bank branches in districts did not create conditions for households who have built / installed biogas plants that have borrowed loans as stipulated in the regulations. Decision No. 1063 / QD-NHNo-DTC dated October 24, 2014 of the General Director of Agribank and Decision No. 510 / QD-NHNo-DTC dated April 24, 2015 of the General Director of Agribank. 437 households with a loan amount of 34,569.0 million).

IV. Measures to ensure safety.

- Socio-economic development policies in the renovation period have encouraged private enterprises and individual households in Son La to invest in livestock development as a commodity production sector. Medium- and small-scale animal husbandry farms are being replicated throughout the province, meeting most of the demand for consumption and export. However, businesses have only recently invested to improve the productivity and quality of livestock and have not paid sufficient attention to control the amount of waste discharged in the process of raising livestock. According to statistics, currently Son province has 165,920 buffaloes, 214,640 bovines, 17,500 dairy cows, 54.8570 pigs ... estimated cattle waste, cattle at Son La discharges about 9,000 tons of solid waste a day, which is newly treated and used as fertilizer or aquaculture for about 50%. Agricultural production is the main cause of pollution of land, water and air, affecting the public health and sustainable production of the livestock industry itself.

- Activities of Son La PPMU in the last period have promoted the process of reducing environmental pollution caused by agricultural waste through the expansion and development of the biogas program from small scale household works. Create clean energy; Improve livelihoods and improve the quality of life for rural people towards building a sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly agricultural production, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and responding to / To mitigate the impacts of climate change, to effectively use natural resources and agricultural by-products in Son La. In addition to creating a clean energy source for living, biogas plants contribute significantly to minimizing pathogenic and pathogenic agents in animal waste. Wastewater from biogas systems has also been used by some households for irrigation of crops and has been shown to be effective in reducing the amount of chemical fertilizers.

4.2. Ensure social security.

- The results of the implementation of the Low Carbon Agriculture Project in Son La show that the project has contributed to attract labor, create more jobs for a part of the labor force, and bring socio-economic benefits to people. Production, thereby contributing to improving the quality of life for people, especially ethnic minorities. In general, the technique of building and operating biogas reactors is simple and suitable for ecological zones, thus creating jobs for some workers in Son La.

- Biogas technology / biogas is one of the solutions to sustainable management of animal waste as well as waste in rural areas in particular and in Son La province in general. Biogas technology helps to generate clean renewable energy - limiting deforestation, using fossil fuels, biogas products as biogas - non-traditional fuel sources in Vietnam: The demand for cooking, lighting, making cooking easier, cleaner, and saving time and contribute to sustainable environmental sustainability for communities in Son La.
