In his speech at the session, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam stressed the necessity for countries to join forces in the struggle against climate change.
The deputy PM also said it should strengthen cooperation between the government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations in implementing sustainable development goals (SDGs). He suggested the APPF parliaments formulate legal systems that clearly specify the rights and responsibilities of individuals and organizations and prioritize resources for SDGs. In any case, millennium development goals (MDGs) issues must be combined with public expenditure programs, while private investment and public-private partnerships for SDGs should be intensified.
As the triggers for and results of climate change transcend all borders, with global effects, the efforts to minimize negative agents, to prevent and address consequences must be made on a global scale. This is a right and responsibility of all nations and economies, said Mr Dam.
Climate change poses a big challenge for socio-economic development and environmental protection in the sustainable development of the Asia-Pacific region, an area easily vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
At the plenary session, APPF parliamentarians showed a resolute determination and desire to share experiences on dealing with the challenge in legislative and policy-making activities.
Mr Luu said, “We must increase our awareness and knowledge, and provide citizens with a toolbox of information regarding climate change and climate change responses while offering support measures for those who are directly affected by climate change, especially women and children.”
Countries should fine-tune their legal systems and international law, and supervise the enforcement of laws in response to climate change and the implementation of Asia-Pacific countries’ commitments on climate change post 2017, said Mr Luu.
Meanwhile, a representative of the Canadian delegation said pacts like the Paris Agreement on Climate Change are evidence that countries are willing to cooperate on this issue for mutual benefits.
The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Secretary General, Martin Chungong, emphasized that the IPU is prepared to facilitate parliamentary cooperation under a broader framework to strengthen institutions while promoting effective cooperation among countries on the implementation of SDGs, and the mitigation of climate change and natural disasters.
Delegates at the session mentioned an important cooperation channel in the Asia-Pacific region under the topic “enhancing culture and tourism cooperation in the region.”
Asia-Pacific is a diversified and multicultural region with a great potential for tourism development, as such the promotion of culture and tourism cooperation is a primary factor for the economic growth of the region and each country, contributing to maintaining peace and boosting mutual understanding among countries.
