Deputy PM, UK ambassador talk climate change response

Hanoi, July 21 (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai and UK Ambassador to Vietnam Giles Lever mentioned joint cooperation in climate change response during their meeting in Hanoi on July 21.

Both sides reviewed the UK’s assistance to Vietnam in projects on enhancing national capability of coping with climate change, mitigating and controlling the impacts of greenhouse emission, among others.

The Deputy PM hoped that both countries will continue facilitating coordination in building a global framework on climate services, a legal framework on climate change and weather forecast technologies.

Ambassador Lever proposed several initiatives regarding cooperation on climate change, including making joint preparations for the 21st Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 21) slated for this November in Paris, the most significant event of global negotiations on climate change.
