The Government of Vietnam already issued National Agenda 21 on orientation of sustainable development in Vietnam. In September 2012, the Vietnam’s green growth strategy in the period 2011-2020 and Vision to 2050 was approved, stressing that green growth is an important tasks to achieve sustainable, ensure the quick economic development and contribute to implement “National Climate Change Strategy”.
