Vietnam hopes that the fourth Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G) Summit, to be held next year, will promote public-private partnerships and cooperation between countries in drafting policies to promote the green growth transition.
That was the viewpoint of Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Dang Quoc Khanh, speaking at the third P4G Summit in Colombia that took place on September 22-23, as Vietnam won the right to host the fourth summit in 2025.
Vietnam has proposed six priority topics for the next summit in two years' time, including food security and poverty reduction; the sustainable use of cross-border water resources; monitoring climate change impacts; funding for net-zero initiatives, carbon-smart agriculture; and a circular economy for plastics.
"Vietnam issued plans to implement a specific roadmap right after COP2, including the National Strategy on Climate Change and the National Action Plan on Green Growth. Vietnam became one of the first three developing countries in the world to join the Just Energy Transition Partnership with very ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop renewable energy to replace coal-fired thermal power," Khanh said.
The Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 is a multilateral initiative for inclusive solutions to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. The forum involves 12 countries, including Denmark, Chile, Mexico, Vietnam, South Korea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Colombia, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and South Africa, along with several international organisations and private companies. The summit is held every two years.
