 UN-Habitat and Adelphi, a German based non-profit institution for policy analysis and strategy consulting, partnered to implement the project “Vertical integration and learning on low emission development (V-LED)”. The overall goal of the project is to foster climate resilient and low-emission development pathways through improved multi-level governance and knowledge management.

For this project, the Academy of Managersfor Construction and Cities (AMC) under the Ministry of Construction is a key actor identified in rolling out training modules for subnational leaders and officers. V-LED Project will assist the AMC to extend their training materials to incorporate mitigation and green growth for sub-nationallevel leaders and officers.

As consequence, a mainstreaming guide on Climate Change Resilience & Low Carbon Development is being developed until December 2017. It will be tested in a Training for Trainers in the AMC in November 2017, then finalised throughout city pilot trainings in 2018.

In order to document learning points and discussion notes for the succeeding training roll-outs in V-LED project, UN-Habitat Vietnam is looking for a training documenter (12 months intermittence).

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December


Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.


The secretary-general's message for the International Day to End Violence against Women and Girls


25 November 2016 - At long last, there is growing global recognition that violence against women and girls is a human rights violation, public health pandemic and serious obstacle to sustainable development.  Yet there is still much more we can and must do to turn this awareness into meaningful prevention and response.
