Study explores measures to reduce Vietnam`s emissions
Wednesday, 2019/07/17 | 08:15:13

A recent study by researchers at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development (IPSARD) in Vietnam suggests that better practices for coffee, rice, maize, and livestock production, can help Vietnam increase its Paris Agreement commitments.

 

The study, published in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, entitled "Reviewing Vietnam's Nationally Determined Contribution: A New Perspective Using the Marginal Cost of Abatement" explored 41 measures to reduce emissions in the agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sector in Vietnam. 

 

“Many of the agriculture measures we examined, particularly in rice, have a substantial mitigation potential and are very cost-effective,” said Bjoern Ole Sander, Country Representative for Vietnam at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and study co-author. “This study clearly shows that agriculture and low emission development can go hand in hand. It is now important to develop implementation strategies together with our Vietnamese partners.”
