GGGI’s work in Vietnam dates back to 2012, when Vietnam adopted its “National Strategy on Green Growth for the period 2011- 2020 with vision to 2050” (VGGS). The VGGS serves as the roadmap to transition to a more sustainable development path and cut GHG emissions while maintaining healthy economic growth. GGGI has supported the development of the VGGS and the implementation of its low carbon green growth, clean industrialization policies, through the Vietnam Green Growth Planning project.
Under the framework of this project, GGGI has supported Vietnam’s efforts to identify and effectively develop bankable green growth investment opportunities, and to develop customized urban green growth development strategies for Vietnamese cities.
GGGI has also initiated a thematic project in support of water-sector green growth policies for sustainable development in the Mekong Delta.
