To support Ministry of Construction (MOC) to implement the NDC, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has conducted an assessment of the potential green city actions that would help achieve Viet Nam’s NDC commitments. This paper, Achieving Viet Nam’s NDC in the Urban Sector, outlines the findings from the assessment in two sectors contributing the majority of urban GHG emissions: waste and energy.
The living document National Climate Change Plan of the United Arab Emirates 2017-2050 consolidates the UAE's climate action under a single framework and identifies strategic priorities, covering both mitigation and adaptation measures.
The climate change document UAE Climate Risk Assessment & Adaptation Measures in Key Sectors: Health, Energy, Infrastructure & Environment is a synthesis of the UAE's climate risk assessment conducted in its four key sectors - health, energy, infrastructure, and the environment - as the first step to implement the National Climate Change Adaptation Program.
NDC Implementation Roadmap Development: Guidelines for Small Island Developing States is a step-wise guideline that provides a practical approach for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) implementing Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement to develop their own NDC Roadmap in an integrated manner. The guideline assists in planning for implementation of the mitigation (or carbon emission reduction) aspects of an NDC, although parts of the documents also deal with adaptation implementation planning.
This handbook, Green Growth Assessment & Extended Cost Benefit Analysis: A handbook for policy and investment decision makers, is an introductory guide for policy makers to apply the Green Growth Assessment Process (GGAP) and extended Cost Benefit Analysis (eCBA) in the planning process. Both tools provide an integrated framework to provide a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the economic, social, and environmental impacts of the projects.
This report focuses on the challenges and opportunities faced by developing countries that are related to the Paris Agreement, both emerging as well as the least developed and most vulnerable countries. The paper is based primarily on the emerging evidence and experience gained on the ground in the Global Green Growth Institute's (GGGI) 30 member countries in recent years, complemented by the published results of leading organizations in each of the areas reviewed.
This report, Mobilization of Private Investment in Green Growth in Viet Nam, outlines the work the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has done in Viet Nam, examining multiple case studies focused on green growth policy support and investment mobilization for bankable projects, and provides recommendations on engaging the private sector in green growth financing.
The Green Growth Potential Assessment (GGPA) is a diagnostic tool that combines data analysis and stakeholder consultation. Its purpose is to identify and prioritize a country’s opportunities for green growth as well as to develop specific recommendations for each of the identified priorities. During the past three years, the assessment process has been successfully concluded in seven countries: Cambodia, Colombia, Lao PDR, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, and Peru. This report, Green Growth Potential Assessment: Synthesis report, summarizes the experiences in each country and discusses the lessons learned during that period.
Fiji is highly vulnerable to climate change due to its position as a Small Developing State (SIDS), which leaves the country exposed to sea-level rise, cyclones of increasing intensity, and flooding, among other potential consequences. It is therefore imperative to take ambitious and rapid action to address climate change through GHG emission reductions. The Fiji Low Emission Development Strategy (LEDS) 2018-2050 is a living document compiled in 201 to define pathways to achieve low emission development in Fiji until 2050.
