On 28 October 2016, the Prime Minister has approved and stipulated the Plan for Implementation of the Paris Agreement by Decision No. 2053/QD-TTg as a very important step towards planning and implementing the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) targets (namely 8% GHG emission reduction compared to business as usual with domestic resources and up to 25 % with international support by 2030) and the Paris Agreement in Viet Nam. In the Annex of this Decision, 68 tasks have been defined with different levels of priority and their envisaged time period frame (for either 2016-2020 or 2021-2030, whereas the first period is supposed to focus on readiness preparation, while the second period targets the concrete implementation of all measures as formulated in the (I)NDC respectively required by the Paris Agreement).
