Delegates discussed measures to establish an overall zoning plan on implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity and increasing the capacity of ecological systems against climate change.

The plan is expected to benefit many countries, including Colombia, Tanzania, Zambia, and Vietnam thanks to funding worth over 3 million Euro, sourced from Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) from January 2014 to April 2018.

In Vietnam, the project will help the Mekong Delta region deal with flooding and preserve ecological systems in coastal areas.
