Prior to the tour, Deputy Foreign Minister Do Hong said Viet Viet Nam will announce new initiatives and commitments at the COP28.

The conference is of significant importance as climate change remains the biggest global challenge, the Deputy Foreign Minister told reporters ahead of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh's tour to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to attend the event.

It is where the world will take stock of progress on the Paris Agreement – the landmark climate treaty concluded in 2015 – and chart a course of action to dramatically reduce emissions and protect lives and livelihoods.

In a recent interview with VGP, Resident Representative in Viet Nam Ramla Khalidisaid said UNDP very much looks forward to Viet Nam's launch of the highly anticipated JETP Resource Mobilization Plan at COP28.

This marks an important first step in the implementation of Viet Nam's JETP, outlining a roadmap for achieving just energy transition targets, identifying priority areas and interventions, and defining criteria for selecting investment projects, she noted.

The UNDP encourages the Vietnamese delegation to actively participate in negotiations, particularly relating to the "loss and damage fund," which was agreed to be established last year at COP27.

It is important to ensure that this fund can bring benefits to and be operationalized in Viet Nam, as one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change, to help it deal the unavoidable risks and impacts of climate change.

"We also hope that Viet Nam will engage in discussions and final efforts to define the Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA) and develop a GGA Framework", shared the UNDP official.

UNDP is anticipating Viet Nam's participation in discussions on the results of the first Global Stocktake on climate change, the synthesis report was released in September, which assesses the world's collective progress towards addressing the climate crisis, she added.
