Through the Business Partnerships Platform (BPP), the Australian Government called for inclusive business partnership proposals to help support green and resilient COVID-19 economic recovery in Vietnam.
Vietnam is among the most vulnerable nations to climate change impacts. Extreme weather events in recent years have become more severe with higher frequency and magnitude. The Vietnamese Government is focused on supporting enduring and effective climate change responses. Australia is working with Vietnam, and other countries in our region, to address the challenges presented by climate change.
Australia’s approach, as outlined through Australia’s Technology Investment Roadmap, emphasises the need to invest in new technology to drive down the cost of low emission technologies and accelerate their deployment. The BPP’s Call for Green Recovery Partnerships in Vietnam invited businesses and their partners to submit proposals that could accelerate progress towards climate and energy solutions in Vietnam.
