Vietnam - Enhancing agricultural methane ambition in Vietnam’s climate commitments

CCAC Funded
Implementing partners

This project responds to the request by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development for services that support to meet the country’s mitigation commitments announced at COP26 and raise methane ambition in its 2023 NDCs. 

Project reference: Vietnam - Enhancing agricultural methane ambition in Vietnam’s climate commitments [VN-22-001]


This project will achieve by its completion: 

  • Vietnam’s government has increased capacity on GHG accounting in the AFOLU sector, and financial tools for SLCP mitigation. 
  • Vietnam’s government endorses a methane roadmap for crop production and livestock sectors. 
  • Vietnam’s government increases methane ambition in its updated NDC by 2023. 

What we're doing

The project should deliver at a minimum:   

  • Training workshops, with associated tools and guidelines, on greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector to representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, national institutions, practitioners, and producers to support future reporting under the UNFCCC on Vietnam’s NDC implementation. This must include training on refined data methodologies. 
  • An assessment and report on the status of methane mitigation in Vietnam, and the most effective implementation pathways for achieving methane mitigation from crop production and livestock to help Vietnam develop a methane roadmap for the sector that also contributes to its sustainable development goals and economic growth.  
  • An investment strategy that can help Vietnam achieve its methane targets, building on the findings of the above mitigation assessment. The investment strategy should consider linkages to carbon markets, financial investments in low carbon/methane mitigation measures in the livestock sector, and technological/financial investment support for converting biogas to energy (electricity and fuels). 
  • A model-based analysis for the AFOLU sector using the mitigation assessment and investment strategies as inputs to the analysis. This analysis will support Vietnam update and enhance short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation in its NDC by 2023.
