Country report: 15 years achieving the Viet Nam Millennium Development Goals

This report documents the progress/ results of Viet Nam in implementing MDGs throughout the period from 2001 to 2015. Along this 15-year journey of moving towards MDG achievement, after the first report compiled by UNDP in 2002, the country has developed annual Country Reports in 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2013 that described the progress for each time period. This report concludes that process by providing a broad-based and insightful review of achievement as well as challenges faced by Viet Nam during the whole MDG period, and provides perspectives for the country’s development beyond 2015.

This report comprises four main chapters. Chapter 1 provides detailed analysis of Viet Nam’s socio-economic development context in three developmental stages: 2001-2005, 2006-2010, and 2011-2015. Chapter 2 analyzes the country’s results for the eight MDGs; it reviews both successes and identifies challenges hindering the completion of MDGs. Chapter 3 highlights key lessons learnt from good practices throughout implementation period of MDGs from 2000 to 2015. The key lessons learnt include poverty reduction, mobilization of international resources, decentralization and strengthening ownership, capacity building, and international integration. Chapter 4 examines the challenges that Viet Nam is likely to face in the post-2015 period, while also addressing the potential opportunities that the country needs to embrace to achieve developmental success. The report uses statistics and information collected from government and UN agencies to offer valuable and reliable insights on the country’s progress in MDGs implementation.

Consolidated Report on Viet Nam’s Post-2015 Consultation Process

This report is the United Nations (UN) in Viet Nam’s contribution to the global discussion on a Post-2015 Development Agenda. It presents the outcomes from a consultation process that took place between November 2012 and March 2013, with representatives from eight target groups throughout the country. As part of the consultations, over 1,320 men, women, young people and children were asked what kind of future they would like post-2015, when the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire.

The eight groups were selected on the basis that they do not usually have a voice in formal consultation processes and comprised ethnic minorities, older people, people living with HIV/AIDS, people with disabilities, the private sector, the rural poor, the urban poor and young people.

Factsheet for MDG 7: Ensure environmental sustainability

OVERALL PROGRESS TO DATE

Viet Nam has been making commendable progress on environmental sustainability but is unlikely to achieve MDG 7 by 2015. Climate change is widening the gaps in reaching key targets of the goal.

Achievements made so far include the inclusion of sustainable development principles into the socio-economic development strategy (2011-2020) and socio-economic development plans (2006-2010 and 2011-2015). Forest coverage has increased from 28.8 percent in 1990 to 39.5 percent of total land in 2010. More than 96 percent of all households have access to modern energy and are connected to the electricity grid.

Although Viet Nam’s green-house gas emissions are low, accounting for only 0.3 percent of the global emissions in 2004, CO2 emissions per capita increased four times in the period 1990-2008. Energy use (kilogram oil equivalent) per $1,000 GDP (PPP) was reduced from 407 in 1990 to 267 in 2008.

Meanwhile, 92 percent of households had access to safe drinking water in 2011, up from 78.7 percent in 2000. Rural households with access to safe water rose from 73.5 to 89.4 percent over the last decade. In 2011, 78 percent of all households and 71.4 percent of rural households had access to sanitary latrines, up from 44.1 percent and 32.5 percent in 2000 respectively. The proportion of the population living in temporary housing fell from 15.9 percent in 1999 to 7.8 percent in 2009.

Factsheet for MDG 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases

OVERALL PROGRESS TO DATE
Viet Nam has made significant improvements in the legal and policy framework in recent years, and has a sound national strategy and plans in place for responding to HIV. The HIV prevalence rate is estimated at 0.28 per cent for all age groups in 2010. The scope of anti-retroviral treatment has expanded from an estimated 30 per cent in 2007 to 53.7 per cent in 2009.

Impressive progress on prevention and control of malaria shows that Viet Nam has already achieved the MDG target on malaria control. Viet Nam is also acknowledged to have done a good job in controlling other epidemics such as SARS, H5N1 and H1N1.
