UN Secretary-General Antnio Guterres, has called for Governments across South-East Asia, to take a lead in the fight against global warming and the damaging impact of climate change. Today at only 1.1 degrees of warming globally, crops and livestock across the region are being hit and hunger is rising, with poor small scale women farmers, living in rural areas suffering the most.

If there was ever reason to doubt the life-or-death impact of global warming, that's long gone.

The landmark report, released in South Korea on Monday, was compiled by a team of 91 authors from 40 countries following the 2015 Paris climate agreement, in which policymakers from around the world, including India and Pakistan, agreed to work towards limiting the global average temperature increase to 1.5°C.

In the past few years, the Advisory Council for the National Committee on Climate Change, comprised of leading scientists, have made scientific reports on elements of extreme weather and climate change, as well as helped build strategies and policies on climate change in Vietnam. Coral reefs would decline by 70-90 percent with global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius, whereas virtually all (more than 99 percent) would be lost with the high warming cap.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday urged worldwide community to take swift moves to combat global warming that triggered wave of drought, high level sea and torrential rainfall.

She emphasized that the high-level dialogue is a unique and strategic opportunity to discuss opportunities to increase ambition and expedite transformation to achieve the Paris Agreement objective and Vietnam's climate change targets, in order to keep the impacts of climate change within manageable levels. UNDP is proud of providing technical support to this process together with GIZ and other development partners, she stressed.

Following the meeting in the RoK, Vietnam was chosen as the first country to be introduced to this special report. Vietnam can deploy at least 85 gigawatts of solar photovoltaic generation capacity and 21 gigawatts of wind energy generation, well before 2050, showing that a low-carbon pathway is possible, said the UNDP Country Director.

For Canada, that means emissions would need to fall to a maximum of 385 million tonnes a year.
