RFPs: Collective Impact to Reduce Air Pollution (Vietnam)

Deadline: 30-Sep-22

Winrock is pleased to announce this Request for Application (RFA) that seeks innovative and creative approaches from eligible Vietnamese non-governmental organizations to develop a collective impact Initiative to address the challenge of reducing air pollution from two key sources in Vietnam.

The Reducing Pollution Project demonstrates clear connections between environmental benefits and other social benefits, including public health, employment, and sustainable economic growth.
