Vietnam faces many serious environmental problems compounded by climate change and global warming: land degradation, air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, and declining biodiversity.
Now, the environmental pollution caused by the over use and defective storage of pesticides is becoming alarming. A large amount of now-obsolete pesticides remain in warehouses from the subsidy period 1975 – 1990 and are threatening the health of local people and degrading the environment.
