The event was jointly organized by the French Development Agency (AFD) in Vietnam, Live and Learn for Environment and Community (Live & Learn), and the European Union (EU) Mission to Vietnam.

The EGD is a set of proposals adopted by the European Commission (EC) to make the EU's climate, energy, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030 compared to the 1990 levels, and help the EU become climate neutral continent by 2050.

According to EU Ambassador to Vietnam Giorgio Aliberti, Vietnam has made a strong commitment and determination to respond to climate change and promote transition to a green and circular economy. He affirmed the EU will continue to work with Vietnam to fulfill its commitment of reducing net emissions to zero by 2050. It will also work closely with the Southeast Asian nation to implement short-term and long-term strategies and build specific plans in line with the roadmap, he added.
