Greeting IPCC Chairman Hoesung Lee in Hanoi on October 24, he spoke highly of the cooperation between the IPCC, which is under the World Meteorological Organisation, and Vietnam’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, especially amid heavy climate change impacts on the country at present.

Climate change is happening at a fast pace in Vietnam, he said, noting that his country has suffered from the most severe drought and floods in three decades this year, affecting its economic growth and the attainment of socio-economic targets.

He asked the IPCC to share experience in this field to help promote Vietnam’s capacity in climate change-related research. He suggested the panel help the country’s agencies, universities, institutes and hydro-meteorological centre take part in its research groups, especially those on climate change.

Vietnam wants the IPCC share climate change response solutions and provide technical and equipment support so that the Southeast Asian nation can assess more precisely climate change impacts, especially flooding, saltwater intrusion and geological changes.

It also hopes for the IPCC’s close coordination to realise the agreements reached at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP 21), which Vietnam also participated in.

At the meeting, Hoesung Lee informed his host about the success of a workshop between the IPCC and Vietnam’s Government agencies. He added representatives of the important IPCC bodies came to Vietnam this time, showing the panel’s resolve to cooperate with the nation in dealing with climate change.

The IPCC is fully aware of the climate change challenges facing Vietnam, and it is implementing climate change research activities around the globe.

Việt Nam has initially outlined five major goals to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

The major goals set under the draft Action Plan on Paris Agreement on Climate Change Implementation are waiting for Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc’s approval.

The first goal was to cut 8 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, following the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC), said Phạm Văn Tấn, deputy head of Meteorology, Hydrology and Climate Change Department at the high-level meeting between Việt Nam’s National Committee on Climate Change and international partners, held in Hà Nội yesterday.

Tấn said the second goal was fulfilling commitments on climate change adaptation under the INDC. Additionally, preparing human resources, technologies, and funds to shift the national economy towards a low-carbon economy was to be the third goal.

The fourth goal was running a system of measurement, reporting and verification to assess mitigating and adapting activities of climate change’s impacts. The last goal would be perfecting policies and mechanisms to accelerate climate-change coping activities, he said.

To fully achieve these goals, more financial support from international organisations was really needed, he said.

Currently, the Japan International Co-operation Agency committed to fund about JPY 10 billion (US$95.7 million), the World Bank $210 million and the French Development Agency (AFD) $110 million for Việt Nam in 2017.
