Biodiversity, Climate Change & Livelihood: A Vietnamese Perspective
With Ly Anh Hoàng, Hanoi Law University, Vietnam
In recent years, Vietnam has made impressive economic achievements, which has helped the country to move from a low-income to middle-income economy. However, the associated fast growth has also caused numerous environmental and social issues relating to biodiversity and livelihood, especially under the impact of climate change such as biodiversity loss and degradation, and unsustainable livelihoods. In this talk, Dr Hoang will address the problems of biodiversity, climate change and livelihood as both specific and interrelated issues in Vietnamese context, and suggest ways forward to tackling these issues in Vietnam.
Professor Ly Anh Hoang is a lecturer in International Law and Acting Head of Office for Research Management and Journal Administration at Hanoi Law University (HLU), Viet Nam. She is currently visiting the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives (University of Victoria) as a scholar under the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Advanced Scholars (QES-AS) Scholarships program. Her research focuses on Vietnamese and comparative environmental laws as well as public international law, law of the sea, human rights law, and the laws of international organizations.
