At COP28, Vietnam made strong commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, developing renewable energy, and addressing climate change.

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and a high-level delegation attended COP28, demonstrating Vietnam's commitment and positive engagement in international dialogue and cooperation on climate change. At this event, Vietnam participated in important activities, including the G77 Summit on Climate Change, a Dialogue on "Accelerating Coal Transition," and the announcement of the Resource Mobilization Plan for the implementation of the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP). Vietnam also launched a unique project to cultivate 1 million hectares of high-yield, low-emission rice.

More than 10 years ago, Ho Chi Minh City invested over 8,600 billion VND to renovate the Nhiêu Lộc - Thị Nghè Canal, promising a green and refreshing space in the heart of the urban area.
