This three-year project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the Centre for Marinelife Conservation and Community Development (MCD), a Vietnamese organization, will engage youth in helping raise awareness and implementing practical measures.

The ability of young people to identify risks and come up with ways to improve the environment in the four Red River Delta provinces is vital to the future success of this beautiful region, said Acting Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs Judith Garber Judith Garber at the ceremony.

In addition to youth engagement, USAID’s cooperation will help district authorities lead CCA initiatives and support the role of civil society in fighting climate change.

The project will directly work in four districts of four provinces in the Red River Delta including Nam Dinh, Thai Binh, NinhBinh and Hai Phong City.
