ICEM - Promoting Climate Resilient Rural Infrastructure in Northern Viet Nam


Published on

This presentation gives an introduction to the project from ICEM funded by ADB and in collaboration with UNDP to promote climate resilient rural infrastructure in Northern Vietnam.
The purpose of the project is:
To assist Vietnam in taking steps to protect rural infrastructure from the anticipated effects of climate change, by enhancing the capacity of stakeholders at local, provincial and national level;
2) To assess climate risks, and
3) To design and implement cost effective, sustainable, bioengineered solutions to increase climate resilience.

  8. 8. 1. Identification of low-cost climate-proofing measures forrural infrastructure in northern Viet Nam.2. Demonstration of climate change-resilient techniques in theprovinces of Bac Kan and Son La on two rural roads, oneirrigation scheme and one river embankment.3. Establishment of a cadre of trained technical personnelfamiliar with the protection measures.4. Recommendations for integration of the demonstratedapproaches into training curricula, standard designprocedures and contract specifications.5. Identification of climate change risks and vulnerabilities,and the potential for applying the demonstrated measuresfor strengthening the resilience of nearby communities.TA 8102-VIE: Scope of Services
