In 2010, collaboration between the An Giang province and the city of Växjö in the area of climate change and environmental awareness was initiated. Since then we have strengthened our collaboration by visiting each other to learn more about our different challenges and possibilities. We have participated and conducted different workshops that has strengthened their knowledge as well as their capacity. We, in our turn have received a better understanding of the importance of communication and to be aware of cultural differences.
The overall goal of the project is to create an improved environmental management and planning capacity which will lead to a to a sustainable development of the society in Long Xuyen.
