About the Program


PROGRAM FOR INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT IN RELATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN VIETNAM (2013 – 2019)

Due to its very long coastline, tropical climate and high population density in low lying areas, Vietnam is one of the world’s most vulnerable nations to the impacts of climate change. Furthermore, the combined effect of population growth and accelerating migration from rural to urban areas, means that Vietnam’s cities are expanding rapidly. Uncontrolled or poorly planned expansion will increase the population at risk to the extreme weather events likely to be exacerbated by climate change. These issues are particularly relevant to provinces in the central coastal region therefore strengthened capacity and greater resilience is a high priority....See more
