The government of Vietnam has announced an action plan on climate change adaptation to 2030, with a goal of reducing the industry-trade sector's greenhouse gas emissions by 25 to 30%.

Under the plan, the ratio of renewable energy in the total primary energy supply will reach about 15-20% by 2030 and 25-30% by 2045. Meanwhile, greenhouse gas emissions from power generation are forecast to decline to about 42 million tons of CO2 equivalent by 2050.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade will promote the shift of business production models towards green growth, which apply technology and digital solutions for economical and efficient resource utilization, while also developing sustainable infrastructure to enhance economic growth and minimize negative environmental impacts.

In addition, the Ministry will work to improve the industry and trade sector's climate adaptability and resilience as well as disaster risk management. Development strategies for the sector for the period 2021-2030 will be reviewed and supplemented with climate change solutions. Measures will also be implemented to enhance infrastructure's capacity to withstand the impacts of flooding and other natural disasters.
