As we celebrate Earth Day worldwide, UNDP Resident Representative in Việt Nam, Ramla Khalidi, shares a few reflections and recommendations regarding women’s roles in climate action and policies. Việt Nam is committed to pursuing gender equality and climate action as the country's highest agenda and is an active member of all international agreements to promote these interconnected goals. How is gender equality practically translated into climate policies and practices in Việt Nam? The report examines climate and gender governance structures, investigates the factors that drive gender inequalities and women’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, and analyses the status of mainstreaming gender into sectoral policies. It is time for Việt Nam to elevate gender-sensitive measures in such subsectors’ climate action plans.
