  • Adaptation should happen at all of these levels  Need for mainstreaming
  • Mainstreaming: a “new policy arrangement”?
  • Thesis p. 91-92Vietnam = test case of economic and intellectual interests, bv. 1994, judicial system support by JICA. Thesis p. 94, CCA programmes in developing countries
  • Thesis p. 147
  • Thesis p 102* This Platform was supposed to be set up in 2011, but was cancelled due to governmental fragmentation issues. Donors contributed significant financial investments with the goal that the Platform would encourage collaboration among diverse stakeholders.
  • To build up overall capacity for climate change actions in cross sectors in the government of Vietnam
  • Thesis p 168
  • Loan agreement up to 110 million USDMost striking achievements: financial mechanism & budget line
  • Thesis 235
  • Overcoming barriers to mainstreaming with the mainstreamed policy dialogue

  • Outline (A) Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) into development 1 – Adapting to climate change 2 – Mainstreaming CCA into development 3 – Measuring mainstreaming: discourse, actors, rules & resources 4 - Case study of JICA in Vietnam (B) Japan’s efforts on mainstreaming CCA into Vietnamese development policy 1 – Mainstreaming CCA into Development: actors • Vietnamese Development Policy • JICA 2 - Mainstreaming CCA into Development: resources • Vietnamese development policy • JICA (C) Addressing the mainstreaming gaps 2
  • 1. Adapting to climate change 2. Mainstreaming CCA into development 3. Measuring mainstreaming: discourse, actors, rules & resources 4. Case study of JICA in Vietnam 3
  • 1. Adapting to climate change Figure 1 – Variations of the Earth’s surface temperature, 1000-2100 (Parry et al., 2007) 4
  • 1. Adapting to climate change DEVELOPMENT PROBLEM Figure 2 – Climate change vulnerability index 2012 (Maplecroft, 2012) 5
  • 1. Adapting to climate change Responding to climate change through ADAPTATION “The adjustment in natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climatic stimuli or their effects, which moderates harm or exploits beneficial opportunities.” (Parry et al., 2007) 6
  • 1. Adapting to climate change CLIMATE CHANGE 7
  • 2. Mainstreaming CCA into development Climate Change Adaptation(CCA) mainstreaming all sectors of society process of development policy planning & implementation 8

Mainstreaming CCA into development MACRO-LEVEL MESO-LEVEL MICRO-LEVEL DONOR: JICA Support Programme to Respond to Climate Change (SP-RCC) NATIONAL LEVEL: Government in Hanoi National Target Programme to Respond to Climate Change (NTP-RCC) LOCAL LEVEL: Can Tho City Climate Change Coordination Office Figure 3 – Mainstreaming on three levels (Adapted from Persson & Klein, 2009)68 9

  • 3. Measuring mainstreaming: discourse, actors, rules & resources • Mainstreaming as a New Policy Arrangement: Policy Arrangements Approach (PAA) (Arts et al., 2006) resources actors rules discourse Figure 5 - The tetrahedron as symbol for the connections between the dimensions of a policy arrangement (Adapted from Arts et al., 2006)69 11

  • 3. Measuring mainstreaming: discourse, actors, rules & resources Ranking System a) 1 (not the case), 2 (low), 3 (moderate), 4 (high) b) Calculation of the level of mainstreaming per dimension and overall outcome per level: high (4.0>3.4), high (3.3>2.8), medium (2.7>2.2), low (2.1>1.7), very low (1.6>1.0) c) Understanding barriers to mainstreaming 17
  • 4. Case Study of JICA in Vietnam 18 • Since 1995: top donor in Vietnam • Traditionally: “growth-oriented poverty reductions” • In recent years: economic & intellectual interests in Vietnam • 2008: JBIC x JICA  loans • High number of climate change programmes in developing countries, e.g. 2009, Support Programme to Respond to Climate Change (SP-RCC)
  • 4. Case Study of JICA in Vietnam • 2008, National Target Programme to Respond to Climate Change (NTP-RCC) Figure 7 - Map of Vietnam (www.jaif.co.jp.) 19

Mainstreaming CCA into development: actors Vietnamese development policy • Interview, Senior Project Formulation Advisor, Disaster Management and Rural Water Supply, JICA: “Basically, the coordination between the line agencies at the central level is the main obstacle to working with the Vietnamese government.” • Interviews, Climate Change Policy Advisor, UNDP; Senior Project Formulation Advisor, Disaster Management and Rural Water Supply, JICA: “The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources are the least open to cooperation with other ministries.” Main obstacle to institutional mainstreaming on meso-level:  2008, Vietnamese National Target Programme to Respond to Climate Change (NTP-RCC)

  • 34 1. Mainstreaming CCA into development: resources Vietnamese development policy • 2008, NTP-RCC: “a financial mechanism should be created for the State to ensure necessary resources and to mobilise domestic and international supports”. • 2006, Decree No. 131 on ODA management and utilisation: “financial planning related to ODA is the responsibility of the Ministry of Planning & Investment (MPI), in coordination with the Ministry of Finance (MoF)”. However, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) is mainly responsible for CCA. For mainstreaming, MPI and MoF should decide over the CCA budget allocation over all sectors.

Mainstreaming CCA into development: resources JICA SP-RCC: • Loan agreement / budget support (2012: 248 million USD; 2013: 278-328 million USD) • However, lack of financial mechanism to allocate budget to climate change • 2010: creation of framework for financing climate change investments as a priority (Decision No. 8981/VPCP-QHQT, Dec. 10 2010) • 2011: Prime Minister approval • 2012: pilot application • 2013: regular operation of the framework According to the SP-RCC Programme Manager: “most striking achievement of the SP-RCC”
