2 Dr. Tran Thanh Tu Exploring National and Global Actions to reduce Greenhouse gas Emissions (European Commission) ENGAGE 2019 Apply Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) to support the Paris Agreement (PA) in co-producing a new generation of global and national decarbonization pathways, with cutting-edge insights from social science in order to reflect multidimensional feasibility of decarbonization and identify opportunities to strengthen climate policies. The pathways will be designed to minimize overshoot of the temperature target and analyses the timing of net-zero emissions to meet the Paris temperature target and reduce the reliance on controversial negative emissions technologies. In addition, they will link national mitigation strategies of major emitters with the PA’s objectives, integrate potential game-changing innovations, and advance conceptually novel approaches to architectures of international climate agreements. ENGAGE will also quantify avoided impacts of climate change, co-benefits and trade-offs of climate policy, and identify the biggest sectoral opportunities for climate change mitigation. 78,000 EUR

1 2/2018 -12/2020 Dr. Le Thai Hoang Quantification of Antibiotic resistance factors in surface water and risk assessment for water security in Ho Chi Minh City NAFOSTED, 105.99-2018.19 This project aims to rapidly and accurately characterize the level of antibiotic resistance factors in surface water in HCM City and quantitative risk assessment for water security and public health. The first objective is to measure the concentrations of antibiotic residues(AB), antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB), and antibiotic resistant genes (ARG) in surface water along Dong Nai river in HCM City. The second objective is to conduct a quantitative risk assessment on antibiotic resistance to evaluate various factors on the development and persistence of antibiotic resistance, and to examine the potential risk of infection by AMR bacteria to public community. 954
2 4/2020 – 4/2023 Dr. Ngo Thi Thuan Investigation of levels, distributions, sources and preliminary risk assessment of polychlorinated naphthalenens (PCNs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) in ambient air of Ho Chi Minh City. NAFOSTED, 104.04-2019.35 This project aims to evaluate concentrations, distributions and sources of dl-PCBs, PCNs and PAHs in ambient air concentrations of Ho Chi Minh City and primarily assess on health risks caused by exposure of PCNs, dl-PCBs and PAHs through inhalation. 1150

1 2017-2018 Dr. Trần Thanh Tú Air pollution projection in transport sector for Ho Chi Minh City in 2030 and propose the greenhouse gas mitigation measures for transport sector T2017-02-DEE This research aims to develop the scenarios to project the air pollution from transportation activities under the socio-economic development in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. As a result, this research proposes some mitigation measures to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from passenger transport sector for the city. 30
2 2018-2019 Dr. Le Thai Hoang Detection and quantification of antibiotic resistant gene in aquatic environment using PCR and Realtime PCR T2017-01-DEE The project develops and validates a PCR/Realtime PCR method to quantifiy ARG in the surface water samples. The validated methods can be applied for monitoring the contamination of antibiotic resistance in the aquatic environment. 30
