- Improvement of legal system and government organization, raising of environmental awareness among stakeholders, and human resource development in all actors have been rapidly achieving in Vietnam, but further efforts and advancements are needed. National government (MONRE/VEA) is expected to take a major roll of collecting and spreading best practices of environmental management methodology and environmental technology introduction to contribute improvement of legal system and its implementation.
- In the short term, ensuring effectiveness of command-and-control by human resource development, impartial and reliable execution of monitoring and inspection is important. On the other hand, in the long term, it is important to encourage polluters to self environmental management by governmental guidance and support.
- National government (MONRE/VEA) is expected to construct appropriate environmental technology assessment system by a third party. In addition, national government (MONRE/VEA) and local governments (DONREs) are expected to function as the hub of the information network between polluters, environmental consultants, and environmental engineering service providers to disseminate and apply environmental monitoring/pollution reduction technologies.
