This policy brief explores the role of environmental funds for helping control water pollution in Vietnam. Pollution control funds are urgently needed as a transitional mechanism for better managing the increasingly serious water pollution problem in terms of load, concentration and toxicity. Such funds focus on providing financial and technical support for polluting firms so that Government commitments to pollution control can be met. The paper sets out the rationale for providing concessional funding for water pollution control, describes current funding mechanisms for pollution control that are already in place, and examines the main considerations in setting up funds.
