Climate and Disaster Resilience 


Climate change has become more and more severe, affecting many communities and causing losses to all aspects of socio-economic life, environment and natural resources in Vietnam. The Government of Vietnam has thus advocated for a proactive response to climate change and issued a large number of important policies and documents, of which most notably, is the National Target Program to respond to climate change and green growth in the period 2016-2020, and the Plan to implement the Paris Agreement. Being the Chair of the VNGO&CC network, SRD, together with other CSOs, has made great contributions to climate change adaptation efforts through various programs, projects, and research at both local and national levels, for the common goal of minimizing the impacts of climate change on socioeconomics and environment. There have been hundreds of initiatives and actions to adapt to climate change and mitigate natural disaster risks to be supported and implemented by CSOs throughout the country. Being active, creative and transparent in implementation, SRD and many other CSOs have brought up significant changes in awareness raising, climate adaptiveness and resilience in the affected communities and relevant partners.
