 The Prime Minister has approved three foreign-funded development projects which focus on renewable energy, caring for disabled children and water management.

The “Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency” project is scheduled from 2015-2017 using non-refundable official development assistance (ODA) from the German government.

It aims to develop a systematic methodology for effective investment and use of renewable energies and build policies to facilitate investment in this field.

The “Disabilities Integration of Services and Therapies Network for Capacity and Treatment in Thai Binh Province” project will be funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The nearly 1.8 million USD project will be implemented between now and 2019 in seven districts of the northern province Thai Binh.

It is intended to improve the quality of life of children with disabilities under 6 years old and their families by implementing a comprehensive model of early childhood disability detection and intervention.

Provided with 220 million USD in loans by the World Bank, the five-year “Vinh Phuc Flood Risk and Water Management” project seeks to strengthen flood management in the central catchment of the northern province, reduce disaster impacts on the livelihood of local people and improve the provincial ecosystem.-VNA
