Addressing a high-level session of the ongoing 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in Canada, the Deputy Minister called on member countries to take similar actions towards building a prosperous and healthy planet.
As an active member of the convention, Vietnam recommended quickly establishing mechanisms to support its implementation, including new ones for finance, resource mobilization, capacity building, technique, scientific cooperation and technology transfer.
It is also necessary to strengthen cooperation among stakeholders to successfully realize the ambitious goals of the global biodiversity framework, creating opportunities for each person, organization, and country to maximize their roles and responsibilities in realizing Vision 2050 on living in harmony with nature.
Vietnam joined the CBD in 1994. In January 2022, the Vietnamese Government approved a national strategy on biodiversity to 2030 with a vision to 2050.
COP 15 takes place from December 7 to 19 in Montreal, with governments from around the world coming together to agree on a new set of goals to guide global action through 2030 to halt and reverse nature loss.- (VNA/VLLF)
