Supporting systematic action to implement Vietnam’s NDC: review of adaptation and mitigation priorities and economics

The objective of the consultancy was to conduct a systematic review and synthesis of existing knowledge and studies on climate priorities in Vietnam, including investment, policy measures and their economic implications. This meant reviewing published academic and grey literature, in addition to ongoing work, and discussion with key government agencies, national technical institutes and development partners.

From these sources, Metroeconomica identified, collected, and summarized major identified climate adaptation and mitigation opportunities in Vietnam. Knowledge on key climate impacts, scale and return on investments, barriers to investment and the role of the government were also analysed.  Both adaptation and mitigation options were then ranked in order of priority in relation to their Benefit-Cost Ratio.

A later phase in the project scaled down the analysis to two pilot provinces, Cân Tho and Thanh Hóa. In these provinces, climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation opportunities, barriers to investment and the role of government were analysed. With this data, opportunities were ranked in order of priority.
