Over VND15.3 billion invested in low carbon agricultural project
Binh Dinh is expected to invest in VND15.34 billion to develop a low carbon agricultural support project this year, a local official in the agriculture sector said.
According to deputy Director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Dao Van Hung, the total cost included VND14.6 billion financed from the Asia Development Bank (ADB) and VND740 million from the local budget.
Under the project, training courses on the comprehensive management approach for animal waste were held for local officials in this sector.
The consultation has also been provided for farmers to help them build more than 1575 mini biogas works.
Some venues and farmers will also be selected to participate in the model of the low carbon agricultural support project, combining with the livestock development and new rural construction programmes to ensure the comprehensive animal waste management.
