At the event, Anna Pia Schreyoegg from the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) suggested some solutions to make air quality in Hanoi better in a project on air quality management and climate change mitigation.
Participants discussed measures and actions to improve air quality to protect people’s health, while proposing policies on air management, sufficient energy, waste and urban management, and green lifestyle.
Many experts also said that the coordination between units, organizations and individuals in the field of air has not been good, thus it is neccessary to share and exchange ideas to achieve spreading effect in the air quality improvement.
