Vietnam-Integrated Action Plan to Reduce Vehicle Emissions
"A major goal of this strategy is to reduce mobile sources of air pollution in Viet Nam’s largest cities. According to this strategy, industry, business units, management agencies and the transport sector must carefully control pollutant emissions such as carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and dust in order to protect the air environment and reduce air pollution. Furthermore, they are required to ensure that Viet Nam's air quality meets the average standards set by the Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) member states. A priority program is to apply strict vehicle emissions standards for transportation. The NEPS has identified three major objectives:
- to prevent and control pollution;
- to protect, preserve and utilize sustainable natural resources and biological diversity; and
- to improve environmental quality in urban and rural areas and industrial parks."
