Vietnam leader approves 'Green Growth' strategy

HANOI -- Vietnam has outlined its commitment to reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions with the implementation of the Green Growth strategy, approved by the Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung last week.

The document sets a number of targets for improving the environmental situation in the country between now and 2020, with a vision reaching even further ahead. It is hoped that GHG emissions will decrease by between 8 and 10 percent in that time, compared to levels recorded in 2010.

The Director of the Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment, Nguyen Van Tai, said although GHG emissions in Vietnam have increased rapidly over the last few decades, they still remain low compared with other developed countries.
