CCWG Position Paper on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Global warming has to be curbed to a maximum of two degrees over this century to maintain the planet as a hospitable place and to avoid extreme and unmanageable situations caused by climate change. As a lower middle income country that is very vulnerable to climate change effects, Vietnam faces the challenge of how to respond effectively to climate change while at the same time meeting its development needs in a sustainable way. To tackle climate change and to lead the Vietnamese economy into a low carbon future, all sources of man-made pollutants caused by electricity production, transportation, industry, waste and agriculture need to be reduced dramatically.
