The Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will this year continue to assist Vietnam to monitor and compile its greenhouse gases inventory.

Vietnam first started to monitor and record the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere in 2005.

However, Japan is now helping the country to bring the organisational structure and monitoring operations up to modern international standards to ensure the quality of the information.

This was announced by the chief advisor of the JICA funded project, Takako Ono, at a meeting to discuss the project in Hanoi on April 10.

The project, which is costing over 3 million USD, started in May 2011 and will continue until February 2014.

It has designed a plan to improve the system currently used in Vietnam. Japan has also provided the expertise to analyse the data from previous national greenhouse gas inventories.

A new system has been proposed for collecting data in the field and a draft guidance document from the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on monitoring and collecting data on emissions has been compiled.-VNA
