Tidal surge floods Nguyen Van Cu street in Ninh Kieu district, Can Tho city, in early October.

It was financed with 4.6 million EUR (5.2 million USD) in non-refundable aid under the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety.

It aims to strengthen the MoNRE’s capacity in the coordination and development of NAMAs in Vietnam. At the workshop, MoNRE Deputy Minister Le Cong Thanh said Vietnam has set targets to appropriately contribute to the Paris Agreement on climate change.

This project has greatly helped to assist the building of corresponding targets and policies and prepare for their implementation. Notably, it has worked as a driving force for the country’s contributions to global efforts in climate change response, as reflected in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

He noted after Vietnam successfully submitted its NDCs in 2015, the NAMA project has assisted the preparation for implementing the NDCs at the national level and for building a nationwide action plan.

The continuation of this project will also help the country consolidate its position in the international climate policy, Thanh added.

It has also successfully built a framework for monitoring climate policy outcomes of all relevant ministries and sectors, he said, adding that this tool has helped Vietnam systematically monitor national climate change targets and policies.

Anna Schreyoegg, Chief Technical Advisor of the NAMA project, said the project has built two concrete climate actions aiming at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. These NAMAs aim to develop climate-friendly bus systems in big cities and apply measures for efficient energy and the use of rooftop solar panels in the textile-garment industry. They also have the potential to promote job creation, energy security, effective natural resources use, and pollution reduction in Vietnam.

At the workshop, domestic and foreign climate experts also discussed the next phase of the NAMA project. Accordingly, GIZ will work with the MoNRE’s Department of Climate Change to carry out the project “Support to Vietnam for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement”.
