IV. Measures to ensure safety

1. Ensure environmental safety
Environmental pollution caused by livestock is mainly caused by sources of solid waste, liquid waste, dust, noise, dead animals and poultry buried or destroyed technically. Therefore, environmental pollution has become a pressing problem in many localities, especially in rural areas. While farms and livestock farms in Nam Dinh only about 20% are built in concentrated areas, 75-80% are built around residential areas, causing environmental pollution, increasing the risk of outbreaks. Disease for cattle and humans, so the prevention of environmental pollution always go along with the development of the livestock industry.

In particular, solid waste and liquid waste discharged directly into the environment, or use without treatment will cause serious environmental pollution. It is estimated that a ton of live manure that is managed and used today will emit about 0.24 tonnes of CO2. Causing the greenhouse effect to increase the temperature of the earth.

To deal with environmental pollution in livestock, there are many modern technologies, depending on the characteristics of each region, each household and each livestock model, where households can use different treatment methods. For example: Planning, building cages and farms: Select the location of the building, housing area, density and layout, arrange the stables, build waste treatment facilities, build the system. Biogas digester, bio-composting, sanitation, greenery around the breeding area.

To ensure environmental safety in livestock up to July 2016 Nam Dinh has planned 139 areas of animal husbandry collective, built 12,000 biogas tanks. Of these, over 3399 were supported by the low carbon agricultural support project; 2,500 tanks are supported by the Dutch biogas project, the rest are self-installed by the farmer.

The low carbon agriculture support PMU of Nam Dinh province has guided 27 compost compost classes

2. Ensure social security

The low carbon agriculture support project has contributed to ensuring social safety by supporting livestock farmers to develop and implement animal husbandry environmental technologies. Solve the problem of environmental pollution, disease safety in cattle, poultry and humans. Output products ensure hygiene safety, increase economic efficiency, create jobs on the spot.

Participating in the project helps overcome the environmental pollution caused by livestock in residential areas, reduce the conflict between households, contributing to ensuring social order and safety in rural areas.

Gender and ethnic minorities

Nam Dinh has no ethnic people.
About gender, out of 3399 works have been built 1241 works by the head of the household is female, accounting for 36.5%;
