Climate change and Vietnam


Vietnam is a small country in Southeast Asia yet we export more rice than any other countries in the world except for Thailand. Every year the country produces around 27 million tons of rice and together with that is 23 million tons of rice straw waste. This enormous waste is normally burned openly in the field, on the streets or in  any open land. With every ton of rice straw burned, a ton of toxic greenhouse gases (CO2 and NO) is released to the air. No wonder that the country is listed as one of the ten countries most affected by climate change. Follow us in the journey of finding way to create a prosperous green agriculture in Vietnam.
