Work starts on eco-village

A project to build an eco-village in Tien Chuong Commune in the central province of Ha Tinh to prompt increasing awareness of the need for environment protection started yesterday, Dec 29.

Jointly launched by Toyota Viet Nam (TMV) and the Viet Nam Environment Protection Agency (VEPA), the project also aimed to help local people learn how to preserve natural resources for sustainable development, said organisers.

The VND800 million project, funded by TMV, will include different training courses on environmental hygiene and how to use safe water in an effort to improve community health.

"Local people will also be trained to improve infertile soil and develop eco-systems along and around their fields; new cultivation methods and how to use suitable fertilisers and pesticides," said Akito Tachibana, general director of TMV.

He said local people would be supplied with 200 books guiding them on how to deal with waste around their homes and community and protect safe water resources.

Last year, a similar project was launched in An San Commune in the north-western province of Lao Cai's Bat Xat District, benefiting some hundreds of local people on how to improve their living standards.

The projects are as part of the major Go Green Programme jointly held by the TMV, the VEPA and the Ministry of Education and Training since 2008.
