Environment, science, technology and health issues are increasingly "hot" in Vietnam where air and water quality is deteriorating rapidly, concerns about contaminants in food are always in the press, and development is moving ahead faster than almost anywhere else in the world. You will help our small Environmental, Science, Technology and Health Unit stay abreast of press coverage of these issues by monitoring the Vietnamese media (English and/or Vietnamese language depending on your language skills) and sending the Embassy a weekly report, with occasional research projects for special topics like marine pollution, air quality, TPP trade agreement environmental provisions, etc.
