CSOs IN VIETNAM TOWARDS THE COP 23

The key objective of the historic Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to 1.5oC to 2oC. One of the most critical mechanisms to implement this ambitious target is the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Non-government organizations (NGOs), have a crucial role to play in achieving NDCs by delivering actions that support Vietnam Government and other organisations to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Vietnam is one of the world's most climate vulnerable countries, in which women, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, poor and landless farmers, children, and local communities are the most vulnerable to climate change. In order to effectively deal with climate change, strong efforts by all stakeholders need to meet the Paris Agreement's targets.
Today October 5, 2017, the Climate Change Working Group (CCWG) and some other organizational partners including: CAN, Southern Voice, VUFO-NGO Resource Center, and Oxfam together held the workshop "Towards COP23 - Higher ambition to limit global warming below 2oC or 1.5oC" in Hanoi, Vietnam. At the workshop, CCWG presented 2 position papers making several recommendations on how Vietnam can deliver more ambitious climate action to achieve a global warming pathway of well below 1.5oC.
SRD has been implementing a wide range of projects/programs at community-based level with the aim of supporting poor people in rural and ethnic minorities areas become more resilient with climate change for sustainable development. According to Mrs. Vu Thi Bich Hop, Director of SRD cum Chair of VNGO&CC Network, the mechanism between government agencies and NGOs need to be specified to ensure the most updated two-way communication for effective cooperation; MoU among Department of Climate Change-CCWG-VNGO&CC should be renewed, enabling CSOs/NGOs to contribute more effective to the revision process of NDC as well to formulate NAP.
Mr. Pham Van Tan, Vice Director of the Department of Climate Change, welcomed the input of NGOs to work together to best contribute to the Paris Agreement targets, such as by sharing research and findings on the social and economic impacts of climate change on local communities.
The workshop was among a number of activities helping Vietnam to prepare for the COP23 conference on the Paris Agreement which will be held in Bonn, Germany in November 2017. Over 80 participants from ministries, embassies, international donors and partners, scientists, and mass media attended this workshop.
