Summary: Mission 5, as part of the NORAD financed IIEIA project, was undertaken to HCMC from 4 November to 4 December 2OO4. The air quality monitoring and management system has now been established and is being operated by trained TIEPA/DONRE experts. During Mission 5 we signed an agreement for the establishment of a Reference Laboratory and continued institutional building. NILU upgraded the AirQUIS system and we continued training the local experts. Data quality controls of air quality and meteorological data have been performed, and we continued collecting emission data for modelling purposes. During the mission we also prepared a paper on air quality in HCMC, which also will serve as a state of the environment report.
