The densely populated, low-lying Mekong Delta Region (MDR) is one of the most vulnerable areas to climate change in the world. Climate change is likely to result in temperature, precipitation and storm changes, which will contribute to further land and ecosystem degradation, saline intrusion, drought, flooding, and changes to human and animal disease patterns. These climate changes and physical impacts will have serious consequences for existing and future livelihoods in Viet Nam, particularly for the agriculture and aquaculture sectors and for land-less and land-poor, women and ethnic minorities.
In order to assist the vulnerable communities in Viet Nam to adapt to the emerging climate change effects and improve their climate resilience, CARE Vietnam is implementing the AusAID-funded Integrated Community-based Adaptation in the Mekong (ICAM) Project. The Project is focused on three poor communes in An Phu District (An Giang Province) and two poor Communes in Vinh Chau District (Soc Trang Province). The project is specifically targeting the most vulnerable in the two provinces, namely land-less and land-poor households, with a special emphasis on women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities (PWD) through livelihood, disaster risk reduction and capacity building support.
