Climate change adaptation through biodiversity promotion in Bac Lieu Province, Viet Nam
12/10 - 12/14
This project is part of
In the context of climate change, the southern coastal region of Viet Nam is one of the globally most at-risk areas. The purpose of the project is to increase the protective effect of coastal forests through the sustainable use of resources and biodiversity promotion. To this end, the relevant government agencies will be enabled to tailor their land-use planning to the probable consequences of climate change. The elaboration of adapted management strategies in agriculture and aquaculture will contribute to securing livelihoods of the coastal population. A broad-based awareness-raising campaign through environmental education programmes at schools, combined with the secure establishment of the two focal areas ‘biodiversity promotion’ and ‘climate change adaptation’ in the planning and administrative procedures for coastal zone management at provincial level, has innovative character for the region.
