Promoting cooperation between Vietnam Women’s Union and Delegation of the European Union to Vietnam
At the meeting, VWU Vice President Tran Lan Phuong congratulated Ms. Kristina Bünde on taking the position of new Head of Cooperation Section - the EU Delegation to Vietnam. She also expressed her hope that Ms. Kristina Bünde will have a successful term in Vietnam, contributing to promote the comprehensive partnership and cooperation between Vietnam and the EU in general, and the EU delegation to Vietnam and VWU in particular.
In response, Ms. Kristina Bünde said that there was significant gender dimension to climate and environmental action, requiring the EU and its partner countries to address gender equality and climate change all together. Regarding the upcoming activities, she hopes to provide further support so that women, step by step, could influence decision-making processes on climate change and environmental conservation policies and actions in Viet Nam. "With the cooperation of VWU, we wish to promote the social monitoring and social debating that link to national and provincial policies on climate change adaptation and mitigation and on environmental issues", she shared.
