Consultation on building a model of community adaptation to climate change in Red River Delta

Consultation on building a model of community adaptation to climate change in Red River Delta

In order to implement the Memorandum of Understanding about climate change in the 2019 – 2023 period, on March 29, 2019, the consultation meeting “Building a model of community livelihood development for the Red River Delta for adapting to climate change, effectively using of water resources” was organized by Department of Climate Change. Participating in the meeting were representatives of NGOs joining in the VNGO & CC network, CCWG, professional agencies and business units of the Climate Change Department. Mr. Tang The Cuong, Director of Department of Climate Change, chaired the meeting.

This is one objective under the National Target Programme for Climate Change Response and Green Growth for the 2016-2020 period, appoved by the Prime Minister. In the meeting, the Department of Climate Change wanted to listen and learn about NGO experiences in building potential adaptation models for the Red River Delta region.

During the meeting, NGOs shared climate change response models, which were implemented successfully in provinces in Red River Delta. These models included; Capacity building for local authorities to develop an action plan on climate change adaptation and resilience at the district level; Community assessment of climate risks, vulnerability and capacity to identify response solutions; direct drinking water supplication system by integrating the use of solar energy; wastewater treatment system in craft villages.

In addition, solutions for climate change livelihood adaptation, which were successfully implemented by NGOs in the Red River Delta include; Livelihoods into mangrove forest; less emissions in rice cultivation ; Rice-shrimp; white leg shrimp farming; Growing potatoes with basic soil preparation techniques ... Some solutions and models of climate change adaptation implemented by NGOs in other localities may be suitable when applied in Red River Delta and have been shared by NGOs such as: agricultural village adapting to climate change; agricultural climate information service for local people, etc.

Professional agencies and business unit of the Department of Climate Change also shared various methods and models such as, warning systems about salinization, and drought and warning system about surface water quality, groundwater.

Leaders of the Department of Climate Change affirmed that when determining the livelihood model for the Red River Delta, it is necessary to follow the landscape approach (for example, coastal areas, inland areas, hilly areas). Besides, assessing climate risks and vulnerabilities, a capacity assessment is needed to identify responses that are suitable solutions for local conditions.

In order to complete the implementation plan, the Department of Climate Change hopes NGOs can share relevant documents, reports, expert sources, and contribute ideas. In addition, in 2015, the Department of Climate Change cooperated with VNGO & CC and CCWG to develop a set of criteria, a conduct of assessment and an integration of livelihood models adapted to climate change at community level. This criteria is being updated by NGOs and can be a useful reference source during the model building process in Red River Delta.
