According to a Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) scientific report, it is reported that 45% of CO2 emissions come from transportation source, therefore the calculation of CO2 emissions from transportation is one of important and urgent issue for evaluation the CO2 emissions. The results of the calculation and evaluation the CO2 emissions that will be provided a scientific basis for policy makers to propose a feasible strategy to cut greenhouse gas emissions, particularly CO2 from transport emissions. In this study, total CO2 emissions from transport activities were calculated for 24 districts in Ho Chi Minh City, the biggest city in Vietnam. The result of study shows that the emissions ranging from CO2 tons /year up to 110 CO2 tons/year and focus on the downtown area in city. It is indicated that the total amount of CO2 emissions in Ho Chi Minh City is quite high and need to have some policies to reduce the CO2 emission such as the development a model of using public transport instead of personal vehicles that really need to be need to implement and implement. The results of research serve as a scientific data and provide calculated inventory data, methods to inventory greenhouse gases from CO2 emissions from transport sources and support the goal of reducing total emissions that aims to build a low-carbon city.
