The COBENEFITS Policy Report for Vietnam compiles key findings from the COBENEFITS Vietnam Assessment series, quantifying the co-benefits of decarbonising Vietnam’s power sector in view of future-oriented employment and skills development and energy access, unlocking development in rural areas related to a less carbon-intensive power sector.
With its recent NDC update, the Vietnamese government has made the social and economic opportunities of climate action central to the country’s endeavours — an aspiration that is not yet refl ected by the new NDC’s limited level of ambition. This COBENEFITS policy reports seeks to activate these untapped potentials for both the climate and the people of Vietnam through the political implementation of Vietnam’s updated NDC.
