Date of Release: 
Oct 6 2014

It was important to come up with ways to mitigate CO2 emissions in agriculture, which produces approximately 43 percent of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Le Quoc Doanh said at a recent seminar.

Doanh announced that the ministry had already set up a working group in charge of pushing Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) to achieve this goal. The group was set up under the framework of a three-year project launched in March that organises training courses for policymakers and experts on developing NAMA plans.
