Vietnam needs further efforts to mitigate climate change

In a new report, the IPCC said the world's temperatures will likely reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 at the current rate of warming.

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said Australia should "absolutely" continue to use and exploit its coal reserves despite the IPCC's awful warning the world only has until 2030 to avoid climate change catastrophe.

Countries should now strive to keep the Earth's temperature rise to only 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) instead of the 2°C target agreed to at the Paris Agreement talks in 2015, urges the United Nations.

Experts have voiced that Vietnam needs to become a demanding participant in worldwide climate negotiations and actively make efforts to tackle climate change since the country is among the most heavily impacted by this negative phenomenon.

Vietnam's contributions to global goals and climate change response in the fields of agriculture, rural development, natural resources, and the environment, among others, were also introduced at the event. However, scientists and climate change researchers were quick to vocalize their doubts about the cap and how effective and practical it would be. their goal felt so unattainable that they proposed a second cap, aiming to stall the rise in temperature at 2 degrees Celsius, (3.6 Fahrenheit).

The country has now approved plans for the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change, as well as fully implemented the treaties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol, he said.

A report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) detailing progress and pathways to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius has said climate change has literally set the planet on fire, with millions of people in Africa already feeling the impacts of poverty.

He said the faster governments embrace the renewable energy revolution and move to protect communities at risk, the more lives and livelihoods that would be spared.

"Limiting warming to 1.5°C is possible within the laws of chemistry and physics but doing so would require unprecedented changes", said Jim Skea, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group III.

By 2100, the likelihood of the Arctic Ocean being without sea ice in the summer would be once per century with global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared with at least once per decade with 2 degrees Celsius. Coral reefs would decline by 70-90 percent with global warming of 1.5°C, whereas virtually all ( 99%) would be lost with 2ºC, Caitlin Wiesen added. At high tide, the sea level rises above these gates, so the canals can only be drained at low-tide but this may be impacted by climate change. UNDP is proud of providing technical support to this process together with GIZ and other development partners, she stressed. Global net emissions of carbon dioxide would need to fall by 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030, and reach "net zero" around 2050.

The new report will feed into a process called the 'Talanoa Dialogue, ' in which parties to the Paris accord will take stock of what has been accomplished over the past three years.
