Under the overall theme “Climate change, including applied technology”, South-driven research projects supported by Danida have been implemented in Vietnam since 2008.
One of the projects that have been on-going from 2012-2016 is the project “Climate Change-Induced Water Disaster and Participatory Information System for Vulnerability Reduction in North Central Vietnam”. It was a research partnership between natural scientists from Hanoi University of Science, Vietnam and social scientists from Roskilde University, Denmark.See how the project communicates the project results in this video.
A comprehensive data set of vulnerability factors related to water disasters and their impact on agriculture and aquaculture is one of the project results. Another is the introduction of a participatory information system to be used by local authorities and communities in reducing vulnerability to climate change in the effected areas.
