The conference “Indicators for green economy in natural management, environmental protection, and climate change response: Appropriateness and feasibility in Vietnam” was organised by the Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE) and the Germany-based Hanns Seidel Foundation to share experience and find methods to encourage green growth in the country.

Speaking at the event, Vietnam Country Representative of Hanns Seidel Foundation Axel Neubert underscored that indicators for green economy in natural management, environmental protection, and climate change response should be top of the government’s agenda for national development.

Meanwhile, Son said the impacts of climate change have challenged Vietnam’s sustainable development and the country has struggled in terms of green thinking, natural resource accumulation, human resources, funding, consumption and production behaviours and more.

The indicators for green economy in Vietnam should be selected based on simplicity, representativeness, appropriateness and feasibility, stated Nguyen Thi Yen from the ISPONRE.
