European Climate Diplomacy Day aims to raise public awareness about the impacts of climate change issues as well as consequences on our way of life and that of future generation. This topic is especially relevant in Vietnam as the latter is among the countries that are most vulnerable to climate change. In addition, European Climate Diplomacy Day also aims to promote the 2015 Paris Climate Conference and the collective actions of the EU and its Member States in the fight against climate change in Vietnam.


The series of events includes:


Press Conference by Mr Jean-Noël Poirier, Ambassador of France (host and chair of the Paris Climate Conference 2015), and Mrs Delphine Malard, Chargé d'Affaires of EU Delegation to Vietnam, as well as with the presence of Ambassadors of Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom. Information will be given on the events organized on the European Climate Diplomacy Day and on the EU and its Member States' contribution to fighting climate change in Vietnam. The Press Conference will take place at the Embassy of France, 57 Tran Hung Dao, on 17 June 2015 at 10:00.

Scientific observations show a phenomenon of an increase in the Earth's average temperature due to human activities. At the current rate of greenhouse gas emissions, the temperatures would rise between 3° and 5°C by 2100 bringing about severe consequences such as sea level rise and an increase in extreme weather events around the world, including Vietnam.


In the light of this, 2015 will be decisive for our planet. This December, France will host and chair the 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris. This Conference will aim at securing a fair, ambitious and legally binding international agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to keep us on track to limit global temperature rises to below 2°C.


The EU, on behalf of its 28 Member States, pursues ambitious targets aiming to reduce its domestic greenhouse gas emissions at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 level. Hence, the EU is fully committed to doing its part and counts on the continued cooperation and collaboration of its international partners to reach a successful conclusion in Paris. This is an historic opportunity we cannot afford to miss.

(Tinmoitruong.vn) - In the past 10 years, HCM City has invested about VND24.3 trillion (more than $1.14 billion) in flood prevention projects. However, just 1.2% of the total workload of these plans have been completed so their effectiveness is beyond expectation.
