International scientific conference "A new paradigm of Anti-global climate change strategy"

On December 12, East Asia University and the Japanese Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology (AIIT) jointly organized an international scientific conference on the topic "A new paradigm of Anti-global climate change strategy".


This is the 4th conference co-organized by Dong A University and AIIT Institute, Japan, and also the 35th international conference co-organized by Dong A University and research institutes and universities. and international organizations.
This is also the third workshop in a series of activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan (1973-2023) at Dong A University in 2023; especially the event that Vietnam-Japan officially upgraded relations to 'Comprehensive Strategic Partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia and the world' at the end of November.
The conference took place in a live and online format at two locations: Da Nang and Japan. The program has the participation of representatives of departments in the city. Da Nang, experts, scholars from AIIT Institute, Japan, and researchers, lecturers, and students of Dong A University.
The conference brings together research and analysis on strategies to combat climate change and propose green growth directions for sustainable development in Vietnam. In addition to research on climate change adaptation; building a geospatial foundation for plastic waste management in Da Nang city; and field surveys on noise exposure levels of motorcyclists, studies also propose the "watershed management" method as a new model for strategies to cope with global climate change. bridge; Building a new railway using battery-powered trains to reduce investment costs and reduce CO2 emissions,...
According to Professor. Mitsuhiro Maeda - Japan Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology (AIIT), in solving global climate change problems, the world has used two types of methods, which are Mitigation and Adaptation. The mitigation method is a method to reduce the increase of CO2 and the earth's temperature. The basic problem with this method is that it is impossible to expect specific results even after investing a large amount of money. Due to this fundamental problem, at the United Nations Climate Change Summit 2022-COP27, the global trend has turned to the Adaptation approach. This is the method of accepting increases in CO2 and temperature and developing disaster prevention measures, and Watershed Management is one of the most effective strategies under the Adaptation group. This is also the opening part of the discussion report "The "basin management" method as a new model for the strategy to cope with global climate change" by Professor. Mitsuhiro Maeda presented at the conference.
Online presentation from Japan's "demand point", from data on the need for urban development to balance between enhancing ecosystem diversity and adapting to climate change, Mr. Yoshiyuki Ito - Regulation Department Urban planning, CTI Engineering Company, Japan also proposed urban development based on strengthening the basin ecosystem. Accordingly, the basin analysis uses a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), which classifies basins into two categories, including Ecosystem Conservation Basins - which promote environmental and biodiversity conservation, and Urban Development Basin - promoting urban development to adapt to increasingly serious weather disasters. According to the author, focusing on watersheds will allow for a more effective allocation of urban development capital; In addition, infrastructure development to respond to increasingly serious disasters requires higher costs than conventional infrastructure development. Therefore, a combination of Japan's Official Development Assistance (ODA) and local private capital can realize these high-cost projects while ensuring economic growth.
At the conference, cooperation in the field of education and research was also signed between Dong A University and AIIT Institute, Japan. Accordingly, the two sides promote joint development of academic cooperation, research, and presentation of research results, exchange of lecturers, exchange of learning materials, publications, and other scientific information as well as co-organization. organize international conferences on different topics every year.
Speaking at the conference, Mr. Luong Minh Sam - Chairman of the Council of Dong A University emphasized: "Combining strength and knowledge from many sources, both international and local, brings great benefits. and multidimensional for both the research community and society. Research collaboration provides opportunities to share information and experiences between parties. This not only helps improve professional knowledge but also encourages innovation in approaches and problem-solving, taking advantage of a diverse concentration of knowledge to analyze, evaluate, and provide solutions. synchronized and effective in combating climate change in the fields of planning, agriculture, developing green production and processing technology, green transportation, etc. There is only consensus and consensus from multi-sectors and multi-sectors. fields can create a positive and sustainable impact in the fight against climate change.”
Previously, in a series of events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan (1973-2023) at Dong A University in 2023, a scientific conference on the topic "The First Dong Du Movement twentieth century – Values from past to present"; series of activities of the Vietnam - Japan Cultural Exchange Festival, the 8th annual Japan Job Fair, 2023; Scientific conference on the topic "Vietnam - Japan Relations: From history to the future" also officially took place.
