6. Other work
- Participation in workshops, workshops organized by the CPPMU.

1. Advantages

- The attention, close guidance of the Central Project Management Board, Lao Cai Provincial People's Committee in the orientation of the key contents and activities of the project to support low carbon agriculture in 2015.
- There is close coordination between the Bank: Agriculture and Rural Development; Social Policy Bank; Farmer Association; The Women's Union and some economic / agricultural divisions of the districts / cities in the implementation of the project.
- There are many large and medium sized livestock households in the districts and cities, with the potential to propagate and mobilize to participate in the project.

2. Difficulties, obstacles

* Objective:

- Lao Cai is a mountainous province with large population density and poor transportation. Therefore, it also affects the implementation and implementation of the project.
- The level of education is uneven, economic conditions are difficult, some upland households do not pay much attention to animal waste, crop residues, environmental pollution.
- A number of central funding programs and policies on support for construction and installation of other biogas tanks with high support levels, simpler procedures than the project ... causing psychological selection, waiting People need to build biogas tanks.
- Non-project enterprises have been selling goods in Lao Cai province, competing fiercely and grabbing the market with the enterprises in the project.

* Subjective:

- Some KTV do not really pay attention and invest time, documents slow finishing, many errors ... leading to slow disbursement.
- Consultancy for local people is still limited, some KTV have not actively cooperated with the branches of the Bank Agriculture and Rural Development district, supply companies, leading to late completion of loan applications, No loan can be disbursed. The supply company has no basis to carry out construction / installation works.

- Suppliers:

+ Thanh Loc Company: After a period of implementation, due to difficulties and changes in business policy, Thanh Loc company stopped the construction and installation activities in Lao Cai province. Leads to empty market.
+ Quang Huy Company (Agent Agriviet): A new unit to participate in the project, lack of experience when deploying to the people. As a matter of fact, due to the large demand for loans and slow disbursement of the Bank, the installation progress has been significantly affected.
+ Green Environment Company (Thuy Nguyen Dealer): Due to the large installed capacity of the people, lack of human resources leads to slow progress in construction, maintenance and maintenance work. Customer care after installation is limited. On the other hand, in 2015, Green Environment Company focuses on propaganda and offering products of recycled plastic tank 16 pieces (black tank). Utilizing propaganda channels promoted by the PPMU to help attract a large number of people to buy, dramatically reduce the speed and number of installed composite works compared to 2014.
