HA NOI — A fund to plant one million trees has been established in Viet Nam which will prioritise densely populated areas such as urban centres, schools and public areas.
Trees will be planted in Ha Noi, Hai Phong, Da Nang and HCM City in the first year of implementation.
The fund was launched by the Viet Nam Environment Administration and the Viet Nam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company which committed to contribute VND3 billion (US$144,000) to the fund this year from sales of its Vfresh soft drink products.
Funding will also be mobilised from other organisations and individuals. — VNS
