As part of Vietnam’s strategies for their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the country has approved its National Green Growth Action Plan (NGGAP) strategies that identify specific activities and tasks to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and provide a clear mandate and ownership to all stakeholders. This devolution of power to different levels of government gives them the responsibility of leading the execution of tasks in order to achieve their NDCs for the Paris Agreement in a more timely and efficient manner. The case study summarizes a few key points regarding the experience of the Lam Dong province in implementing its provincial Green Growth Action Plan (GGAP) from 2021 to 2030. The GGAP focuses on low-emission development while enhancing the resilience of their economy and environment against shocks due to global market competition and climate change. If all interventions in the GGAP were to be implemented, it is estimated that GHG emissions from the province would be reduced by 19.2% compared to their reference condition baseline as well as higher product diversification, lower risks of soil erosion within their watersheds, lower risk of water shortage, higher capacity to conserve biodiversity and higher contribution to the province’s gross regional domestic product. City-level planning, cooperation, and implementation are seen as an important entry point for GHG solutions as 70% of global emissions come from cities. Vietnam is implementing innovative green growth strategies that address its underlying socio-economic challenges while focusing on the protection and preservation of natural resources.
