 Areas at Danang International Airport have been referred to as a dioxin "hotspot" due to high dioxin concentrations in soil and lakebed sediment remaining at this site from the U.S.-Vietnam War. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Vietnamese Ministry of National Defense (MND) are jointly implementing the Environmental Remediation of Dioxin Contamination at Danang Airport Project which aims to clean up the dioxin contamination and reduce the risk of exposure to dioxin while developing Vietnamese capacity for implementing similar remediation activities at other sites in Vietnam.

  1. Environmental remediation is essential in
    disaster recovery. The cleaning up of the effected area and the sampling of the site are needed as soon as possible. Testing conducted on the samples can also identify if there are any toxins present in the environment that may be harmful to the population.
