The agriculture sector of Viet Nam is hastening the development of the action plan for Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs [1]) to join hands with global efforts toward a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.

With continued support from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the Climate Clean Air Coalition (CCAC [2]), the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD [3]) organized a consultative meeting on 23 June 2016 among scientists, management agencies and interested parties to ascertain the sector’s action plan towards the INDCs.

This was the second consultative meeting on the INDCs of the agriculture sector in Viet Nam. The first consultative meeting was held on 25 August 2015 before the submission to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC [4]). Presiding the first meeting, Minister Cao Duc Phat emphasized the important role of the country’s agriculture sector in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and how the sector can significantly contribute to the achievement of their targets.
