Vietnamese experts are among 32 participants from 21 signatory countries to the Kyoto Protocol taking part in a training course on counting greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, which opened in Hanoi on October 22.

The three-day course is organised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) and the Vietnam Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and Environment (VIMHE).

Addressing the opening ceremony, Prof. Dr. Tran Thuc, Director of the VIMHE, said the course is a chance for trainees to share information and experience on counting GHG inventories while increasing national capacity in the field.

He urged the trainees to actively engage in all activities of the course to ensure the best efficiency.

During the course, experts from the UNFCC will provide trainees with guidance in using systems of data managing, storing and reporting tools designed for experts on GHG counting, counting tools in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol, as well as access to counting models.-VNA
