It advises the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) in the revision of its NDC and in the mainstreaming of its climate change related targets into sector policies and strategies. The project also supports MONRE in living up to its role as the national climate change policy coordinator, and in elaborating a long-term climate change strategy, which will determine the required framework for achieving the country’s targets and working to the expectations of the Paris Agreement.

Above all, the project will also support Vietnam in elaborating bankable Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), mobilising domestic finance for them and possibly handing them in to international climate funds.

SIPA is commissioned by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
