Providing support to Vietnam for the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
As of: October 2020
Objective and activities
Vietnam is pursuing a dedicated climate policy. The country was one of the first nations to draw up an action plan to implement the Paris Agreement. The project supports the Vietnamese government in creating the framework conditions for the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the Paris Agreement. The focus is on advising the Ministry of Environment (MONRE) on the development of the NDCs, the establishment of an institutional framework for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) . The project also develops mitigation measures and carries out adaptation measures in two provinces. These measures will be extended to other areas and both will contribute to achieving the Vietnamese NDCs. The programme also coordinates the “IKI Interface for Vietnam”, which, among other tasks, networks the IKI projects in the country.
State of implementation/results
- On 30 and 31 October, the IKI Interfaces Project "Support to Vietnam for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement" hosted a conference for IKI implementers in Vietnam (IKI Interfaces-WS). About 60 representatives from numerous IKI projects took part in the event. The workshop focused on identifying synergies and improving knowledge management among the projects.
- The Vietnamese government is currently revising its Environmental Protection Act of 2014, a process that offers the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) the opportunity to revise the climate chapter and to anchor the Vietnamese National Climate Change Contribution (NDC) in it.
