Capacity Building for Implementaion of National Climate Change Strategy Project
One of the projects carried out to support the implementation of NTPRCC is the project Strengthening National Capacities to Respond to Climate Change in Viet Nam, Reducing Vulnerability and Controlling Green House Gases (GHG) Emissions (CBCC). The CBCC project will end in 2013. The project has contributed significantly to the implementation of NTPRCC objectives of building capacity some implementing agencies and supporting tools and training, providing necessary information, especially at the national level and in some pilot provinces.
The project also contributed to the dissemination of basic and necessary knowledge on scenarios of climate change, sea level rise and assessment of impacts of climate change. CBCC project strengthened the capacity of responding to climate change through the development and dissemination of legal documents, technical guidelines, along with the organisation of workshops and training for state management agencies from the central to local levels, especially training workshops on international climate change negotiations on skills. On the basis of inheriting the obtained results, CBICS project will expand the support scope, focusing on government agencies and directly support the implementation of the objectives of the National Strategy on Climate Change
