Nguyen Thanh Loi, editor-in-chief of Hanoitimes and chairman of the programme's Organising Committee, stated that Hanoi has installed the infrastructure for 35 automatic air surveillance points and 6 surface water monitoring stations to track the purity of both environmental emissions and waste water in manufacturing areas, clusters, and production facilities.

The drive will measure the emissions of old and circulating motorcycles, implement tasks in accordance with the master plan for environmental protection in the Nhue-Day river basins, establish a plan for the improvement of water quality and the synchronous development of technical infrastructure in conjunction with the architectural planning of urban rivers, and construct six domestic wastewater treatment plants.

Hanoi is also planting one million trees in response to the government's initiative to plant a total of one billion between 2021 and 2025.

Loi stated, "This media event signifies a significant turning point in the spread of environmental protection actions in Hanoi."

This is a communication programme designed to increase awareness and responsibility at all levels, sectors, organisations, and individuals regarding environmental protection and proactivity in response to climate change. It also aims to enhance living standards, contribute to the long-term sustainability of the capital, and accomplish the goals and targets outlined in Resolution No.11-NQ/TU from Hanoi Party Committee.
