During the 2nd interdisciplinary symposium on Sustainable development hold in Belgium (20,21,22 May 2015), BTC has presented its project which consists of supporting Viet Nam to implement its Green Growth Strategy.
Abstract of the presentation :
Viet Nam has experienced a rapid economic growth over the last 20 years, bringing social improvements but also raising new challenges. Therefore, in 2012 the government adopted an ambitious Viet Nam National Green Growth Strategy (VNGGS) with as main objectives to reduce the intensity of the country’s economy in terms of energy consumption and greenhouse gases emissions (GHG), and to boost ‘green’ economy sectors. In this paper, we analyze the VNGGS by discussing (1) specificities at the light of other Asian green growth strategies and cautions against the “green growth” paradigm, (2) relevant monitoring indicators and (3) recommendations for scientific research.
