Da Nang Waste-free Schools Handbook


In Da Nang, Vietnam, the USAID-funded Building Healthy Cities (BHC) project developed the Waste-free Schools (WFS) initiative, built on a multisector platform. Working with the Department of Education, the Food Safety Management Authority, and the Department of Natural Resources and Environment, WFS creates continuous communication among these three institutions. WFS used co-creation methods to customize activities to each school. These techniques empower students and teachers to make the materials most useful to them. WFS builds on education and food safety data that BHC has gathered within the city of Da Nang. This manual provides some initial guidance on indicators for program monitoring and contains tools and resources that can be used to adjust and improve the program.
