REG/VIET/Developing and implementing climate change adaptation measures at local level in Vietnam

Description

The Geological Survey of Finland coordinates VIETADAPT II -project in two case study areas in Ba Ria Vun Tau and Thanh Hoa in Vietnam. The main purpose is to increase the capacity of the Vietnamese partners to support the development of climate change adaptation measures for sustainable use of water resources, mainly by training young Vietnamese experts like geologists and hydrologists. The Project continues the work of VIETADAPT I (2011 – 2013), which developed preliminary climate change adaptation measures and identified risks. As a result for example digital surface and groundwater maps and adaptation measures were produced. The Vietnamese institutes conducted research on climate change impacts to groundwater and surface water, and related climate change adaptation options. The project continues to operate intensively with local stakeholders and decision makers in order to receive a common understanding on the need to implement adaptation measures, not only on climate change impacts but also to safeguard valuable water resources under intensifying exploitation due to socio-economic development. VIETADAPT II will be implemented together with the Sub-Institute of Hydro-Meteorology and Environment of South Vietnam (SIHYMETE) and the Centre for Water Resources Monitoring and Forecast´in (CEWAFO), which both work under the lead of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam (MONRE). The beneficiaries are now mainly the institutions, who receive research information for their decision making and develop their practises and instruments. In case the results of the Project will be implemented in practise, the beneficiaries will include also Vietnamese people in the long run.
