Environment, Climate Change & Disasters

  • Strengthening Capacity and Institutional Reform for Green Growth and Sustainable Development in Vietnam
    The initiative, Strengthening Capacity and Institutional Reform for Green Growth and Sustainable Development in Viet Nam (CIGG), builds on earlier partnerships between the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and will build capacity to advance green growth by strengthening policies, regulations and technical guidance for the implementation of the Viet Nam Green Growth Strategy and Action Plan.

OUR WORK - ENVIRONMENT, CLIMATE CHANGE & DISASTERS

Viet Nam, a natural disaster prone country particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, faces new challenges as it continues its development journey. A growing population, increased urbanization and rapid economic development are posing great pressures on natural resources and the environment, while economic growth patterns and technologies are not energy efficient, leading to rising greenhouse gas emissions. Together, these high impact issues have collided to threaten the country’s sustainable development. UNDP has been quick to help Viet Nam identify and respond to these challenges in an agile and sustainable manner. The ONE Plan 2012-2016, under which UNDP operates, sets targets to support the Government in the implementation of multilateral environmental agreements to achieve Millennium Development Goals and Viet Nam’s development targets.
