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. In addition, many farmers continue to overuse pesticides because of the propensity to diseases in agriculture induced by climate change effects, and the economic pressures they face to sustain high productivity.
