Executive. The National Climate Change Strategy and the No: 2139/QD-TTg Decision on Approval of the National Climate Change Strategy. The PM of the Socialist republic of Vietnam approved the National Climate change strategy in December 2011. The document states that the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment will “assume the role of the standing officer of the National Climate Change Committee (NCCC), lead and coordinate with other sectors and localities to govern the implementation of the strategy…”
One of the Guiding Principles of the document is that, “climate change adaptation and GHG emission reduction must be carried on in parallel for effective response to climate change, with adaptation a priority in the initial phase.” Off the specific objectives one is, “ GHG emission reduction and removal to become a mandatory index in social and economic development”
Under implementation, the strategy document also states that, “it is likely that after 2025 that Vietnam has to focus on GHG emission reduction to protect the earth’s climate system. “
GHG emissions reduction target of 1% per year without international support and of 2% per year with international support. Energy intensity (per unit of GDP) reduced by 1.5-2% per year. 5% renewables by 2020 and 11% by 2050
