Climate Change 


 With a coastline that stretches more than 3000km, Vietnam is expected to be one of the most vulnerable countries impacted by climate change and rising sea levels.

 

One of the most significant challenges faced by poor farmers is the effects of climate change. Some of these effects include: decrease in crop productivity due to reduced arable land; degradation of cultivation land due to increasing temperatures and droughts; and an increase in land erosions due to increasing volume and frequency of rainfall.

 

These conditions are expected to worsen with the anticipated effects of climate change. For example, by 2020, Vietnam could further experience 1-2 degrees Celsius increase in the average temperature, 180% increase in heat waves, 2-7% increase in rainfall, and 28-33 cm sea level rise.

 

SRD's mission is to support rural communities in Vietnam to adapt to changes in the environment and to sustainably manage their livelihoods. As a result, we implement projects for climate change mitigation and adaptation in communities.

 

 

1. Capacity building on climate change for civil society organization

 

Overall goal: To raise awareness and build capacity of civil society, focusing on NGOs and their partners, to effectively respond to and integrate climate change adaptation and mitigation into relevant existing and future programs to contribute to long term sustainable development of Vietnam and its citizens.

 

Activities:

o Increased NGO access to information, communication and coordination on climate

change  

o Increased knowledge and skills on CC adaptation, mitigation and capacity to integrate CC and DRR into existing programs and implement deliverable carbon projects

 

2. Strengthening the role of Vietnamese NGOs in climate change communications and policy advocacy

 

Overall goal: To improve the effectiveness of Vietnam’s response to climate change through enhancing the capacity of civil society networks and increasing NGO engagement in climate policy.

 

Activities:

o Strengthen the VNGO&CC through an improved structure, stronger internal and

external communications, and coordinating mechanisms

o Strengthen capability for VNGO&CC in policy formation and advocacy implementation

 

3. Enhance the involvement of civil social organizations in the process of National Adaptation Plan (NAP) development

 

Overall goal: Encourage and promote CSO to take part at NAP development process, in order to provide the NAP development team with information and lesson learnt towards a feasible and realistic NAP. Additionally, CSOs will also play an important role for the process of NAP monitoring and evaluation. 

 

Activities:

o Strengthen CSOs capacity for policy advocacy on climate change

o Promote climate change policy dialogue between CSOs, vulnerable communities and government agencies

o Establish a forum for information sharing on climate change vulnerabilities, climate change risks of some regions where adaptation projects have been successfully implemented by CSOs

o Documentation of climate change adaptation models as a reference document for NAP development team and for replication in relevant provinces.

 

 

Our goal is to help rural communities by providing them with long term sustainable solutions:

 

o        Networking for thematic advocacy

 

o        Building the evidence-base

 

o        Participatory approach

 

o        Learning by doing

 

o        Integration of project interventions into government strategies

 

 

Below are stats to show the impact of our work with climate change:

 

o Approximately 2800 households understood the livelihood and smart agriculture models resilient to climate change

 

o 4000 households benefited from a model of biotech maize cultivation and a reduction of greenhouse gas emission

 

o 29 households living conditions improved using the livelihood adaptive model for climate change
