"Environment Issues in Vietnam."

Task 2 Model Essay

There are many environment issues facing Vietnam. In your opinion, what are the causes and effects of the biggest environmental issues that Vietnam must confront.


The past 50 years have seen a dramatic increase in the availability of technology. It has brought significant changes to Vietnam's economy. Moreover, people move to the city in search of work and excitement. This phenomenon leads to overpopulation in urban areas and then creates the dilemma of environmental issues that we need to be concerned about today. In this essay, I intend to discuss the impacts of this problem as well as how more people should be encouraged to protect the environment.

Surprisingly, the most serious consequences of overpopulation are often felt in metropolitan areas. As a result of overcrowding, cities throughout Vietnam are increasing and are prone to environmental troubles like air, water pollution. These problems happen because of the rising of the technology and living standards in the mega cities that make people tend to construct more industrial zones and own more private vehicles. Therefore, the excessive emissions of carbon dioxide which are due to the rising of the needs of burning more fossil fuels tend to increase consumption in industries and households. For these reasons climate changes will occur.

The main impacts of overpopulation on the environment are the contribution to global warming and the growing exacerbation of people's health. Because of changing the climate, the summer in Vietnam is hotter and the rainy season is shorter. Thus, floods always occur in the south of Vietnam. Furthermore, the pollution of the environment results in a decline in people's health and the rise of diseases.

In order to stem the tide of overpopulation to reduce the polluting of the environment in the urban areas in Vietnam, I believe we must first address its root causes. At the heart of the matter is the rise in the burning of fossil fuels. Thus, I firmly believe that people should use renewable resources rather than diesel and limit driving their private vehicles if it is unnecessary. Moreover, the Vietnamese government should provide financial incentives to business and professional workers who are willing to relocate to rural areas to reduce overcrowding in urban areas and then this means we will reduce the effects of overpopulation on the environment.

In reality, this problem is unlikely to be resolved in the short term. However, it is no by means insurmountable, and I am convinced that more people will choose the country as the city life becomes less comfortable and more polluted. This will lead to the reduction in environmental pollution.
