SEARCA ADN 2018 8-5: Assessment of Impacts of Climate Change on Agriculture and Fisheries in the Coastal Areas of Thua Thien Hue Province, Vietnam

Vietnam is one of the five countries predicted to be the most affected by climate change due to its long coastlines; high concentration of population and economic activity in coastal areas; and heavy reliance on agriculture, natural resources, and forestry (Word Bank 2011). Located in Central Vietnam, Thua Thien Hue's agricultural and fisheries sectors have always been negatively affected by climate change. Recognizing the problem, in recent years, Thua Thien Hue province has developed many policies and action strategies to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Thua Thien Hue Provincial People's Community assigned the responsibility to the Department of Agricultural and Rural Development (DARD) and the Department of Natural Resource and Environment to carry out the Provincial Target Program on climate change. Sadly, the program implementation has been said to primarily focus on building response capacity, such as having annual evacuation plans, training people in disaster drills, and providing weather data to local authorities; lacking a long-term planning perspective (Mendoza 2014).
