On Wednesday, August 29, 2018, Hatfield, in partnership with CDM Smith, will be presenting as part of the 3rd Annual Learning Symposium in Hanoi, Vietnam. The Symposium is hosted by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Vietnam Institute of Economics (VIE) to discuss the main theme of “Vietnam’s Engines of Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth: Using Evidence to Inform Policies and Projects”. Jim Webb, Deputy Managing Director of Hatfield Consultants Mekong, will present two posters on “Construction Health and Safety – Positive Impacts to Vietnam’s Vulnerable Workforce” and “Stakeholder Engagement and Capacity Building – a Source of Growth in Science and Technology”.

Hatfield, a Canadian-based environmental consulting company, and CDM Smith, a USA-based engineering firm, have collaborated on several projects in Vietnam including the USAID funded Da Nang Airport Dioxin Environmental Assessment and Remediation. Since 2009 this project has delivered thousands of hours of training and capacity building to a range of Vietnamese experts. Hatfield and CDM Smith will present the results of this work and how the transfer of knowledge and skills has resulted in improved safety practices and work conditions for vulnerable workers including women and unskilled labourers.
