October 27, 2021 – CARE International in Vietnam, in collaboration with the Red Cross Society of Quang Tri Province and Plan International in Vietnam (CARE), organizes an inception workshop to introduce the project ‘Forecast Based Early Action in Southeast Asia – FBEA SEA’ to delegates from provincial, district and commune authorities.

The FBEA-SEA project is implemented in four communes in Huong Hoa district, Quang Tri province and Ham Thuan Bac district, Binh Thuan province and three wards in Ho Chi Minh City until Dec 2022. Tentatively, the project is expected to support more than 6,500 people to improve their capacity to manage disaster response and prevention plans. Actions to reduce the damage of extreme weather events, including floods, droughts and heat, are designed following the framework of the early warning-based action mechanism. The project is being implemented by Plan, CARE and World Vision and their partners, with financial support from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Agency (ECHO).

At the workshop, project partners and stakeholders will spend time learning about the objectives, expected results and proposed innovative approaches to disaster response through early warning and early action.
