On 22nd March 2022 aftenoon, IRD in Vietnam will organise the final restitution of the pilot project entitled “Enhancing plastic packaging collection, sorting and recycling in HCMC".
In the context of developing the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in Vietnam, the pilot project worked on determining what kind of plastic is collected, how and by whom it is transferred and processed, or when it is leaked into the environment. It also assessed if and how the plastic waste is recycled and what would be needed to enhance recycling.
The final restitution webinar will present the context, achievements and outcomes produced by the project.

As a reminder, this pilot project is part of the “Rethinking plastics – Circular economy solutions to marine litter” (Rethinking Plastics) project, co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) GmbH and the French International Technical Cooperation Agency (Expertise France).
