Vietnam joined IIASA in 2013 with the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) representing Vietnam’s scholarly community as the IIASA National Member Organization. Recently IIASA researchers have explored developing climate-resilient agricultural systems in Vietnam and Southeast Asia; provided input to the development of Vietnam’s national policy to tackle air pollution; and calculated projections for Vietnam’s future population and human capital. Three doctoral students from Vietnam have developed their international and interdisciplinary research skills by taking part in IIASA’s Young Scientists Summer Program since 2011.
However, there is significant potential to strengthen collaboration to benefit both Vietnam and IIASA. Activities could include joint IIASA-Vietnamese research in areas ranging from air pollution to tropical deforestation to integrated water management along with joint academic training opportunities for young Vietnamese scientists.
