Pilot Activities Quang Binh
As part of the project ‘Strategic Mainstreaming of Ecosystem-based Adaptation in Vietnam’, the GIZ EbA project team, in cooperation with its partners ISPONRE and the provincial department of the ministry, identified a pilot site as well as suitable EbA measures for gaining practical experience with ecosystem-based adaption in Quang Binh province.
The identification processes functioned in a highly participatory manner and were partly adopted from an approach to fast track implementation of adaptation measures suggested by USAID.
They included i) conducting a rapid, stakeholder-driven screening assessment; ii) focusing on highly vulnerable resources, sub-populations and assets for the vulnerability assessment; iii) browsing a list of fast track adaptation opportunities; iv) conducting a feasibility study of the most promising EbA options and v) applying design criteria to select the most promising adaptation solution.
In Quang Binh province, a six step methodology was applied to guide the assessment study to desired results:
Based on the recommendations generated from the participatory assessment, pilot activities can now be implemented on the ground.
