Vietnam backs global framework on climate services 1:46 PM,5/31/2012
The GFCS, one of the congress’ priorities, was designed to improve the quality of information products, serving different customers, such as state agencies, hydro-meteorological agencies and businesses, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Tran Hong Ha, who headed the Vietnamese delegation to the congress, told a Vietnam News Agency (VNA) correspondent in Geneva, Switzerland.

The framework would help increase mechanisms of exchange at international, regional and national levels, and give priority to countries heavily affected by climate change and developing countries, including Vietnam .

Climate change would severely impact on Vietnam and was a risk factor in achieving the target of poverty reduction as well as implementation of other Millennium Development Goals and sustainable development of the country, the Deputy Minister said.

He stressed the dangers of negative impacts caused by climate change, such as flooding, land area reduction, salinity and severe storms that affect agricultural and industrial production, tourism, and services.

He spoke of Vietnam’s weather forecast capacity in the region and emphasised that the country lacked an advanced and exact forecast technology and needed more investment in the sector.
