Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on February 19 hosted a meeting of the National Committee for Climate Change in Hanoi to discuss its plans to tackle the hot topic of climate change and rising sea levels.

Dung highlighted several important, urgent issues in the national programme to combat climate change, acknowledging that the country has been hit hard by the recent effects of global warming and rising sea levels.

He asked delegates to review the committee’s shortcomings and prioritise tasks to cope with climate change.

According to the committee’s assessment, government policies have been implemented in an efficient and synchronized manner. Notably, scientific research on the issue has been increased to improve relevant ministries and localities’ activities to minimise the negative impacts of climate change.

This year, the committee plans to devise policies to ensure local authorities implement socio-economic plans and encourage the public to become actively involved in environmentally friendly activities, thus contributing towards green growth and the fight against climate change.
