The centre is managed and run by the Northern Centre for Environmental Monitoring under the ministry’s Pollution Control Department.

Addressing the launch, Director of the Pollution Control Department Hoang Van Thuc said the centre is built to integrate all environmental monitoring data into a common system, enable data sharing and publicise information about nationwide environmental quality.

It also looks to implement some digital transformation models to ensure comprehensive, systematic, and highly trustworthy information to help with fruitfully implementing the national master plan on environmental monitoring for the 2021 - 2030 period, with a vision to 2050.

He noted that the centre is receiving, processing, and analysing automatic monitoring data about surrounding air, surface water, wastewater, exhaust, and groundwater from nearly 2,000 monitoring stations across the 63 provinces and centrally-run cities nationwide. It helps environment authorities from central to local levels keep a close watch on the quality of water and air environment, as well as waste release by production establishments and industrial zones.

Data are also shared with the electronic information system that assists with the Government and Prime Minister’s governance activities.

In the time ahead, the centre will develop some platforms serving environmental forecasting and warning, firstly for some big cities, according to Thuc.
