Building Research Capacity on Assessing Community Livelihood Vulnerability to Climate Change Impacts in Central Vietnam and Mekong River Delta

Activities included a series of training sessions and workshops for selected researchers from Research Institute for Climate Change of Can Tho University (DRAGON-Institute-Mekong) and Research Centre for Climate Change (RCCC) of Nong Lam University. These workshops focused on local climate change risk assessment through the analysis of regional climate scenarios on local context of community risk under climate influence.

Funding source: Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN)
Partners: Can Tho University ,Vietnam, Nong Lam University,Vietnam
Principal investigator: Dr.Somrudee Jitpraphai
Researchers: Suppakorn Chinvanno,Dr.Nguyen Hieu Trung, Dr.Nguyen Kim Loi and others
Timeframe: Jan 2010-Jan 2011
Period: 12 months
Status: Completed

SEA START RC developed research capacity at two research centers in two universities in Vietnam, which based on experience of SEA START RC on climate change study in the Southeast Asia region. Activities included a series of training sessions and workshops for selected researchers from Research Institute for Climate Change of Can Tho University (DRAGON-Institute-Mekong) and Research Center for Climate Change (RCCC) of Nong Lam University. These workshops focused on local climate change risk assessment through the analysis of regional climate scenarios on local context of community risk under climate influence.

After the initial training sessions, participants were assigned with tasks to further analyze potential community vulnerability to climate change at two selected study sites: 1) An giang province in Mekong River Delta, and 2)Dong Giang District in Quang Nam province, Vietnam. Field assessments were undertaken at community level to assess risk and vulnerability to climate change. The current baseline situation, long term development plan, and social dynamism of the community were also taken into consideration. The results, issues and suggestions that arose from the exercises were presented and discussed in the follow-up workshops and final synthesis workshop. At this workshop, key community leaders, provincial administrative officials and representatives from Ministry of Natural Resource and Environment brainstormed on adaptation strategies to better manage future risk from climate change. This synthesis workshop produced dialogue on climate change risk and adaptation and served as a platform to provide links between science, policy and community to further develop new thinking paradigm on long-term strategy to adapt to climate change impacts.

Activities :
1)Workshop on assessing community livelihood vulnerability to climate change impacts in central Vietnam and Mekong River Delta.
2)Workshop on developing research capacity on Assessing Community Livelihood Vulnerability to Climate Change Impacts in Central Vietnam and Mekong River Delta.
