Climate Adaptation Planning in Vietnam–A Review of Government Experience

Authors: Nguyen Phuong Nam, Tran Thi Thu Trang, Stephen Tyler, Nguyen Quynh Anh, Bach Tan Sinh, Nguyen Ngoc Huy, Khanh Pham

Climate Action Plans were introduced at the provincial government level in 2009 as part of the Government of Vietnam’s National Target Program to Respond to Climate Change (NTP-RCC). This study reviews the initial experiences of provincial governments in Vietnam with Climate Action Plans (CAPs), which were produced over the period 2010 – 2013. The objective of this study is to compare the local government experience with CAPs in this initial period, in order to provide suggestions to the NTP-RCC secretariat and other related agencies under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) for how these can be improved when they are updated over the coming period (2014-2015).
