The study, carried out under the project titled “Strengthening Capacity on Climate Change Initiatives in the Industry and Trade Sectors” (CCIT), assessed market opportunities in Vietnam from the perspective of financial institutions and service providers.

IIEC completed a project to provide advisory services on Climate Finance in Mongolia.
