1. Social profile
This Ha Tinh social profile focused in its analysis on people, asking which groups are most vulnerable and why, based on an understanding of vulnerability as:
“The state of individuals, groups or communities in terms of their ability to cope with and adapt to any external stress placed on their livelihoods and well-being. It is determined by
- The availability of resources and; crucially,
- By the entitlement of individuals and groups to call on these resources.” (Adger and Kelly 1999)
For this the key social data relating to climate change and ecosystem-based adaptation were mapped at the provincial level in Ha Tinh: population, vulnerable groups, poverty and livelihoods.
It also examines the social dimensions of EbA in Ha Tinh, including the contextual information at the provincial level that any provincial department should keep in mind when analysing and planning for CCA or EbA.
