Da Nang City has become the fastest growing city in Vietnam in recent years with a projected increase in urban area and population in line with rapid economic growth. In the face of climate change, one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced, the government of Vietnam announced its commitment to net zero emissions by 2050 at COP26 to meet the target set by the Paris Agreement in 2015. In line with this national vision and the recently approved Da Nang City 10 Year Environmental Plan, it is increasingly important to formulate Local Climate Change Action Plans (LCCAP) with concrete reduction targets in major sectors in Da Nang City. This publication is the 2nd edition of the conceptual framework of Climate Action Plan for Da Nang City which includes new development of the Waste Management and Integrated Urban Planning sections. Water System and Current Risks sections as well as the other four key sections have also been revised through local stakeholder meetings and international experts collaborations. This climate action plan hopes that all citizens can be encouraged to understand what is urgently needed, and what we ourselves can do today for overcoming the climate crisis.
