Starting in August 2019, the SWITCH Asia SCP Facility has provided technical support to Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) for development of the National Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production (2021.2030) (NAP on SCP). The SCP Facility established a team of international and national experts to conduct an assessment on the current policy and implementation status of SCP in Vietnam. Based on the assessment outcome, the SCP Facility also assisted MoIT to complete the draft NAP on SCP (and submission documents), which was circulated to aligned ministries and organizations for their comments in October 2019. The assessment and development of NAP took a multi-stakeholder consultative process. There were three rounds of national multi-stakeholder consultations co-organized by Ministry of Industry and Trade and SWITCH Asia SCP Facility in Hanoi on April 23rd, September 20th and November 5th in 2019. In December 2019, MoIT submitted the NAP on SCP to the Prime Minister’s Office for approval. In June 2020, the Prime Minister officially approved the National Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production for the Period of 2021.2030.
