Viet Nam's Voluntary National Review on the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals
25 July 2018
In our endeavour to achieve this agenda, the Government of Viet Nam is committed to mobilizing all resources and the participation of government ministries and agencies at all levels, organizations, communities and the people.
Seventeen global SDGs have been nationalized into 115 Viet Nam SDG (VSDG) targets in our "National Action Plan for Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development", based on Viet Nam's development context and priorities, and building on the successful implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The National Action Plan emphasizes the importance of partnerships and clearly assigns tasks and responsibilities to respective stakeholders at both central and local levels in SDG implementation. In addition, Viet Nam has paid particular attention to vulnerable groups such as the poor, people with disabilities, women, children and ethnic minorities through a number of policies aimed at promoting social equality to ensure that no one is left behind. Accordingly, the National Council for Sustainable Development and Competitiveness Improvement, established in 2005, plays an advisory and consultative role to the Prime Minister in the implementation of sustainable development initiatives.
