1. Advantages.

The project is well supported and agreed by all levels, sectors, localities and people in the province.

With the attention and direction of the Central Project Management Board, the PPC and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in the activities of the unit.

2. Difficult.

- Technicians in the district work part-time should partly affect the implementation at the facilities.

- Son La is a poor province, the budget is mainly central so the counterpart fund for the project activities are difficult.

- Currently, in Son La province, there are many units involved in supplying biogas not using LCASP as Thang Long, Thanh Phuc, Thanh Hoi, Green Environment, Ngoc Aquatic…. The price is only half or two thirds of the four types of companies recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development so people are willing to install all kinds of works of these companies.

- The Government issued Decision No. 50 / QD-TTg dated September 4, 2014 by the Prime Minister on policies to support the raising of farmer productivity in the period of 2015-2020. According to Item 3, Article 3 Of Decision No. 50 / QD-TTg the higher level of support of the project.

- On 13 May 2015, the People's Committee of Son La province has issued Decision No. 13/2015 / QD-UBND detailing the implementation of Point b, Clause 3, Article 6, Decision No. 50/2014 / QD-TTg dated 4 September 2014 of the Prime Minister on policies to support the improvement of raising livestock raising in the period 2015-2020 in Son La province level support construction / installation of biogas plant Study (Biogas) 5 million / 1 works higher than the project support (project 3 million / project). So many farmers registered to build / install biogas plant, some digging pit stopped and wait for higher support level.

3. Recommendations

- Ask the Central Management Board of LCASP to give an early comment on component 3 (6 models of low carbon agricultural production) for the provincial project management to complete the plan.
