Conference supports low carbon emissions

(VOV) -Thai Binh province hosted an October 24 conference discussing the development of a low carbon emission economy and the goal of creating common foundations for green growth and poverty reduction.

The Central Institute for Economic Management, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the Green ID Organisation, and Bread for the World are jointly organizing the three-day event.

It is the first step in one of four international projects promoting low-carbon development strategies.

Conference participants discussed the challenges and opportunities arising out of minimising carbon emissions and pursuing green growth, as well as the combined impact of these targets on Vietnam’s poverty reduction campaigns. A project action programme was drafted.

Vietnam wants to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 8–10% based on 2010 levels.
