RESPONSE TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN VIETNAM, THE ROLE OF PREVENTION AGAINST ENVIRONMENT-RELATED CRIMES

Thu Nga Tran Thi, Tuan Hoang Anh, Phuc Nguyen Huu

Abstract


Responses to climate change is approached in two ways: mitigating the effects of climate change and controlling
the causes of climate change. Greenhouse gas (GHG) control is one of the essential parts of responses. In Vietnam,
the issue of climate change and the risks of negative impacts on climate change are on the upswing. The reduction of criminal acts and legal
violations is urgently needed in the current period. Negative impacts of climate change need to be clearly and explicitly identi􀃶ed and
actions taken to effectively prevent these behaviors. In Viet Nam, attention should be paid to the prevention against environmental laws'
violation, in which the main subjects are the Environmental Police Forces. The major activities are environmental pollution and waste
management; to prevent and respond to environmental incidents; to ensure the environment in import and export; forest protection and
biodiversity conservation. Therefore, measures should be taken to ensure the effectiveness of environmental protection in order to promote
its role in responding climate change in Vietnam in the current situation.
