Develop a Scenario for Da Nang as a Low Carbon City

Hoa Thai Nguyen
Abstract—The Vietnam Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) sets the target to reduce 8-25% of total emissions in 2030 compared to Business as Usual (2030BaU). Therefore, the study of developing a Low Carbon City (LCC) for Da Nang aims to respond the national target. Two scenarios are developed for the socio-economic vision of Da Nang by 2030, with the projection of energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission in energy-related categories such as Residential, Commercial, Transportation, and Industry. The study shows that with proposal of five actions including 32 projects, Da Nang can reduce 19% total CO2 emission in countermeasure scenario (2030CM). This result is expected to be useful for researchers and policy-makers who are interested in developing the Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) and to support the vision of building green growth for Da Nang city.

Index Terms—Low carbon city, INDC, Da Nang, Viet Nam.
