Workshop on Vulnerability Assessements in Ha Tinh and Quang Binh

On December 20th, 2016, the Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE) together with the GIZ presented the final results of Vulnerability Assessments in Ha Tinh and Quang Binh province. The study was realised by the International Centre of Environmental Management (ICEM) and a team of national consultants. The workshop was chaired by Dr Nguyen The Chinh, Director General of ISPONRE. Robert Mather, key author of the study, presented the approach and the findings. The methodology focuses on the use of ecosystems to help humans adapt to climate change. The assessments provide in-depth analysis on ecological, economic and social factors, identify exposure and sensitivity to climate hazards, and analyse adaptive capacities to eventually present a list of the most vulnerable socio-ecological systems in the two provinces. The information will help decision-makers to have more insights into and better understand the risks resulting from changing climate. Preliminary findings have already been integrated into the provincial Climate Change Response Action Plans (2016-2020). The study also provides extensive information on three selected socio-ecological systems at village level, showing what should be done to better adapt to the challenges of a changing climate and to improve people’s resilience against the phenomenon.
