GGGI is currently implementing a global carbon finance project funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment called “Designing Article 6 Policy Approaches” or DAPA in four countries, including Vietnam. In Vietnam, GGGI is working with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and other national stakeholders to define Policy Approaches, where the implementation of one or more policies can mobilize carbon finance under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

Ms. Dang Hong Hanh, Co-Founder of VNEEC and also GGGI’s project consultant carried out this research in Vietnam. This study assesses and lists priority policies in the renewable energy sector that can lead to GHG emissions reduction as well as that are feasible in Vietnam. Base on the results, consultant will evaluate and propose the selection of pilot policy approaches to deliver “Internationally Transferable Mitigation Outcomes – ITMOs” under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement with the Norwegian partner.

At the workshop, Ms. Dang Hong Hanh presented the results of research and multicriteria analysis on carbon governance under Article 6.2 of the Paris Agreement through a report titled “Designing Article 6 Policy Approaches in Vietnam – A preliminary assessment of policy options”, thereby making recommendations for potential policy approach selection activities for cooperation in the next phase within the framework of Article 6.2.
