Vietnam approves a project to implement greenhouse gas emissions commitment

Vietnam has taken forward the task to implement outcomes of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties in terms of green energy.

On Monday, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh signed a decision with the approval for this project.

As per the local reports, the project is focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in areas like energy, transportation, construction material production and agriculture, while stepping up waste treatment.

The authorities have stated that greenhouse gas emissions in the energy industry will be reduced by 32.6%, agriculture by 43%, and forestry and land use by 70%.

“By 2030, renewable energy, including hydroelectricity, and wind, solar and biomass power, will account for at least 33% of the total electricity output,” a local report quoted the project brief.

Now, the project is focused on the consolidation of mechanisms, policies and laws, and administrative reform; renewable energy development; energy storage technologies; the reduction of gas emissions in transport and construction material production; green urban development; circular, low-carbon agriculture; the protection, preservation and sustainable use and development of forests; climate change response; and scientific research and innovation, a local report mentioned.

Meanwhile, there will also be an establishment of a national renewable energy centre, while Vietnam also might join the International Renewable Energy Agency.
