Abstract

Vietnam is one of the countries that are vulnerable to adverse impacts of climate change. Therefore, Vietnam has actively entered into a series of international commitments and adjusted its domestic policies and laws. In the implementation of international commitments and the implementation of national legislation, there is a problem of gender mainstreaming.  This paper focuses on the analysis and evaluation of gender equality in Viet Nam's policies. The analysis highlights the differences and characteristics of gender equality in the field of climate change in Vietnam. Vietnamese women who are affected by climate change play a key role in developing and implementing climate change policies of the country. It is important to clarify that women are the beneficiaries of priority which is not only limited to the equality of climate change. On that basis, recommendations were made to strengthen gender inclusion not only in policies but also in the implementation action plans and strategies on climate change in Vietnam.
