The objective is to support
climate smart coastal area development by integrating disaster
and climate risk considerations in relevant policies, plans and investments in Vietnam.
The intermediate objectives are to:
Augment understanding of methods and tools to effectively
integrate disaster and climate risk in coastal area development and strengthen
the framework of integrated coastal area management and designation of setback
Integrated disaster and climate risk into the development of
coastal area development programs.
Integrate disaster and climate-smart recommendations in the Marine Spatial Plan, inform the implementation of the
forest modernization and coastal resilience enhancement project and the design
of the new sustainable fisheries program.
The use of the term “disaster” here references extreme weather events stemming
from a changing climate. The work will not examine natural hazards and
disasters such as earthquakes or tsunamis. It will focus on storm surge and
typhoons and the associated consequences such as erosion and flooding. The intermediate objective has been updated to remove "provincial master plan" due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions. However, the national level MSP is expected to inform the provincial plan.
