As a leader in sustainable development and conservation, Palau is committed to work towards universal and affordable education and health||clean water, air and sea||ample supply of drinking water and local foods within healthy ecosystems. There is a rising concern for the impacts of Climate Change to the well being of the community. Homes, food and marine ecosystems were lost during Typhoon Bopha. There is concern for increasing GHG emissions and Palau acknowledges the need to mitigate GHG emission with clean energy options for infrastructure and transport. Non- communicable diseases are a major concern and a concerted effort is being made to combat NCDs through healthy diet and exercise. Palau is working towards a shared vision in its planning and budgeting process and invites the global community to support priorities sent form by the nation to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

UN-REDD Viet Nam Phase II Programme: Operationalising REDD+ in Viet Nam
Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), Viet Nam

Viet Nam is considered one of the most vulnerable countries to the adverse effects of climate change, facing potential extensive economic damage and loss of life. The country therefore has much to gain by joining the international challenge to mitigate GHG emissions, even though Vietnamese emissions per capita remain very low. Importantly, the National Strategy on Climate Change (approved in December 2011) aims for the “protection and sustainable development of forest, increasing carbon removals and biodiversity conservation” as one of its key strategies.

The Emissions Gap Report 2013: A UNEP Synthesis Report
United Nations Environment Programme

The emissions gap in 2020 is the difference between emission levels in 2020 consistent with meeting climate targets, and levels expected in that year if country pledges and commitments are met. As it becomes less and less likely that the emissions gap will be closed by 2020, the world will have to rely on more difficult, costlier and riskier means after 2020 of keeping the global average temperature increase below 2 C. If the emissions gap is not closed, or significantly narrowed, by 2020, the door to many options limiting the temperature increase to 1.5 C at the end of this century will be closed.
