COP 24: Viet Nam calls on countries to work together to tackle climate change

Viet Nam has called on countries around the world to cooperate with each other and harmonise their own interests with international concerns in coping with climate change. Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Le Cong Thanh, made the appeal while addressing the closing session of the Talanoa Dialogue, which formed part of the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) in Poland. He said that global commitments to the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement must be strengthened and made irreversible, and because climate change is a global responsibility, these commitments should not be subject to re-negotiation or misinterpretation. He further referred to Viet Nam´s efforts in tackling climate change by mentioning the Plan for Implementation of the Paris Agreement, and the work of the NDC on cutting greenhouse gas emissions, adapting to climate change, and increasing national resilience.
The Vietnamese delegation consisted of more than 40 representatives from different ministries, in particular the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE).
In the run-up to the climate conference, GIZ supported the delegation to prepare an official side-event titled, Revising NDCs: stakeholder participation, capacity building and climate finance for implementation“. During the event, two representatives from MONRE and the Viet Nam Panel of Climate Change described the process of reviewing and updating the NDC in Viet Nam, providing an example of international best practice.
