Some lessons learned
Viet Nam ( 8 º 27-23 º 23 N and 102 º 08-109 º 30 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 2000.
The average annual GDP growth rate was 7.5% during 1990-2004. GDP per capita (2004) 560 USD
Viet Nam ratified UNFCCC on 16 November 1994 and Kyoto Protocol on 25 September 2002.
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
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

Information Barriers analysis Items
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
+ 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.
