1. Introduction Viet Nam (8º27-23º23 N and 102º08-109º30 E) with the land area of 330,990 km2 located in Southeast Asia. Three quarters of the land is mountainous and hills with the elevation mostly from 100 to 1000m. The population of Viet Nam was 77,6 million (2000) with average annual growth rate of 1.36% It is predominantly an agricultural country with 74% of its population are involved in agriculture, 7.4 million ha of agricultural lands. The forest areas are 9.3 million ha, forest coverage increases from 27% in 1991 to 33.2% in The average annual GDP growth rate was 7.5% during GDP per capita (2004) 560 USD Sectoral contribution to GDP (2000): Industry: 36.7% Services: 38.7% Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing: 24.5%
1. Introduction (Cont’.) Viet Nam ratified UNFCCC on 16 November 1994 and Kyoto Protocol on 25 September MONRE was assigned by the GOV as a national authority for implementation of the UNFCCC & KP. INC has been submitted to UNFCCC on 2003; under phase II of INC project “The technical report on identification and assessment of technology needs for GHG emission reduction and climte change adaptation in Viet Nam“ has been submitted on 2005
2. Technology Needs Assessment processes The Project “Expedited financing for measures for capacity building in priority areas in Viet Nam (Phase II)” This project is a follow-up to the Initial National Communication project The Implementing Organization: International Cooperation Department (ICD) of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) Duration: July 2004 – September 2005 The objective of the project: enhance capacity and maintain the efforts to access and disseminate information related to climate change technologies.
Three types of activity are required for effective TNA 1. Institutional arrangements for stakeholder engagement 2. TNA assessment processes 3. Implementation actions

The barriers identified in TNA processes ItemsBarriers analysis Information Inadequate access to technical and financial information and poor dissemination of information to technology users. Difficulty for small and medium firms to access technology information Insufficient level of public awareness for intensive activities on CC technology for GHG emission reduction Lack of information about potential market of technologies for investors Technological Inadequate infrastructure, lack of technical standards and supporting institutions, low technical capabilities and technology knowledge base... Lack of technological maintenance. Lack of human resources that can provide consultancy on TNA and technology transfer of climate change adaptation. Market Lack and absent of technology market on GHG reduction and CC adaptation. Institutional Inadequate legal, regulatory and institutional frameworks. Insufficient support at the local level for encouraging energy efficient projects, etc. Lack of joint stakeholder networking and planning Poor coordination among donors and within the country Financial Undeveloped system of environmental funds. Lack of financial, tax and tariff policies on EST transfer project. Deficiency of capital for updating technologies and environmental measures. Lack of involvement of national banks in EST technology transfer.
3.Some lessons learned + TNA will be most successful when they focus on technologies and actions that meet national development goals while also responding to climate change concerns, and when implementation actions complement existing development programs. + Effective TNA should actively engaged all key stakeholders, including government agencies, businesses, technical institutions, and international partners in the selection of technology priorities and design of actions to overcome barriers to technology implementation.
+ It is necessary to build or strengthen the human, scientific, technical and institutional capacity for identifying, designing, developing, monitoring, evaluating and hosting technological projects, including targeted research projects, for bilateral and multilateral funding + The main outputs of the TNA project will be the good and important input of Viet Nam’s SNC project, as expected result a draft action plan framework for the transfer and adoption of ESTs will be prepared during the implementation of SNC
Conclusions + TNA help Viet Nam to identify their climate change adaptation technology transfer priorities and develop effective strategies to address them. It can be powerful instruments for focusing the attention of government agencies, the international donor community and private sector investors on a well-defined set of priority activities. + Strengthening the technical and financial support on TDT for reducing GHG emission and adaptation to CC from International and donor countries is necessary; and should be as part of commitments by developed countries.
