Hanoi, June 14, 2016 – Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE), in partnership with Hanns Seidel Foundation(HSF) and Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), co-organized a workshop on ’’Sustainable Development Goals Implementations in CLMV countries’’. The event took place from 14 to 15 June 2016, gathering representatives from the relevant ministries in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam. In particular, the purpose of the workshop aligned with 17 Sustainable Development Goals shared by the four countries, and their current steps towards sustainable development.


                                    Director - Nguyen The Chinh-  gave opening remarks to all participants

       The two-day workshop was a great opportunity for delegates to exchange ideas and experience in regard to their prior involvement in Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), set priorities for individual countries and draft implementation processes towards their targeted SDGs. It was expected that the event would promote exchange of knowledge and cooperation at regional and international levels and draw much attention from experts in Asia and Europe.

       During the workshop, Mrs Thuy from Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) states that the goverment cannot be able to succeed in securing national development as well as achieving SDGs on its own. There are quite a few challenges that Vietnam faces when implementing SDGs, including reductions in ODA, weak institutional framework for SDG reporting, reviewing and reporting, or predomination of low-value added and labor intensive activities. The involvement of relevant ministries, civil society, enterprises, international partners and community in the process is particularly important and should be encouraged more in the future thanks to the provision of knowledge, technological and financial resources.
