All activities dealing with climate change need to be streamlined in
national development policies to raise their effectiveness, Vietnamese
representatives to the 3rd Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation
Forum in the Republic of Korea have said.

The activities should
also be popularised to get everyone involved in the effort, the
Vietnamese representatives voiced at the forum, which opened from March
18.

The Vietnamese delegation to the event consists
of officials from the Vietnam Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and
Environment, and the southern city of Can Tho’s Centre for Climate
Change Response.

Up to 500 participants from international
organisations and institutes, and 60 countries’ academies and
international organisations in the Asia-Pacific region are attending the
three-day forum.

They are expected to share experiences and work
out specific, efficient strategies and action plans to the ongoing
combat climate change.

The event was jointly held by the Korea
Environment Institute (KEI) and the authorities of the RoK’s Incheon
city with support from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP),
the Institute for Global Environment Strategies (IGES) and the Stockholm
Environment Institute (Stockholm- S EI).
