Vietnam

Vietnam’s Department of Environment of the Ministry of Transport and GIZ cooperate to implement Vietnam’s international climate commitment, the so-called Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), through the Advancing Transport Climate Strategies (TraCS) project. In addition, in the context of the BMZ/EU co-funded project Transport and Climate Change in the ASEAN Region GIZ and the government of Vietnam work on fuel economy policies and green freight.

Vietnam committed to reduce emissions by 8% to 25% by 2030 against a business-as-usual scenario.  As motorisation and transport demand in Vietnam have been rising rapidly in the past decades. The sector is one of the key sectors highlighted in the NDC (as part of the energy sector). According to Vietnam’s second Biannual Update Report (BUR), transport accounted for around 30 Mt of CO2e emissions in 2013.
