Vietnam - National CFC and Halon Phase-Out Project : environmental assessment : Pest management plan (English)

The objective of the National Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and Halon Phase out Project is to assist the Government of Vietnam to phase out methyl bromide (MB) consumption for non-Quarantine and Pre-Shipment applications in accordance with the schedule stipulated in the Montreal protocol, the World Bank agreed to help the country develop a MB Phase - out plan. Some of the negative impacts of the project are as follows: (i) soil treatment with chemicals nematicides/fungicides effect directly and indirectly to human health and causing chemical contamination in soil, air and under ground water; (ii) soil treatment with copper sulphate leaving residue of heavy metal in the soil, causing contamination of products and causing chemical pollution of soil, air and under ground water; (iii) regular spray with fungicides effect directly and indirectly to human health and causing chemical pollution of soil, air and under ground water; and (iv) soil fumigation with MB causing depletion of Ozone. The mitigation measures are as follows: (i) development of pest control standards and hygiene requirements for storage facilities; (ii) training for MB users; (iii) training of local technicians and farmers; and (iv) termiticide products used by certified pest control operators.
