  • VIETADAPT - Development and implementation of climate change adaption measures in coastal areas in Vietnam Philipp Schmidt-Thomé Kristiina Nuottimäki SIHYMETE, Thinh, Ngo Nam 2013
  • Why geology and climate change adaptation? • Geosciences support adaptation processes with data sets and information and contributes to the science-stakeholder dialogue • Geology plays a key role in the identification of climate related hazards, vulnerabilities and risks, also taking environmental and socio-economic aspects into consideration • VIETADAPT focuses on the science-stakeholder dialogue • VIETADAPT supports the development and implementation of climate change adaptation measures in land-use planning (local, regional and national) 17 March 2014Philipp Schmidt-Thomé
  • Sea level rise, storm surges & sea water intrusion into costal groundwater aquifers Temperature & precipitation, wind, heat island effect New developments Industry and trade / harbours Housing Cultural assets Environment, recreation Energy supply Emergency preparedness Examples of urban geological topics related to natural hazard and climate change Modified after Johannes Klein 17 March 2014Philipp Schmidt-Thomé Soil contamination
  • The BaltCICA project has • …used scenario workshops for science-stakeholder communication • …contributed to new and/or updated land-use and natural resources protection plans • …implemented adaptation measures in flood prone areas in Finland, Germany, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia • …endorsed protection of groundwater resources in Finland, Denmark and Lithuania • …peer reviewed and published the results • www.baltcica.org 17 March 2014Philipp Schmidt-Thomé
  • VIETADAPT - Development and implementation of climate change adaption measures in coastal areas in Vietnam • Funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Finland by ICI (Institutional Co-operation Instrument) • Nov 2011 - Nov 2013 • Geological Survey of Finland • The Vietnam Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and Environment (IMHEN) • The Centre for Water Resources Planning and Investigation (CWRPI) Philipp Schmidt-Thomé 17 March 2014
  • 17 March 2014 Overall goals Philipp Schmidt-Thomé Base maps © ESRI • Evaluate climate change and socio-economic scenarios • Identify socio-economic development and climate change impacts on the environment • Identify, model and map vulnerabilities and risks on groundwater and surface water resources • Focus on science – stakeholder communication • Develop climate change adaptation measures
  • VIETADAPT implementation: – Studies of salt water intrusion to coastal aquifers and surface waters – Analysis on sea level rise impacts – Communication with stakeholders to analyze and address local interests and perceptions – Local impact studies on environment, aquifers and fresh water – Training of young Vietnamese experts Philipp Schmidt-Thomé 17 March 2014
  • VIETADAPT II • Land-use is in a key position in both creating and preventing damages • Close science-stakeholder co-operation and dialogue to develop feasible measures to reduce natural hazard and climate change impacts • Identify climate change adaptation measures on local level • Prioritize non-regret measures • Inform the private sector on project results to trigger spin off’s and technological solutions 17 March 2014Philipp Schmidt-Thomé
  • Business opportunities in Vietnam • Water sector – Drinking water quality (ground and surface water) – Assessment of groundwater pollution – EIA for different industrial activities – Water resource management – Water reservoirs • (Waste sector / topic outside project scope) – Proper landfills – Recycling – Industrial waste management (environmental laws) • (Sewage water treatment / topic outside project scope) – Cost efficient, easy to apply 17 March 2014Philipp Schmidt-Thomé
