The Social Dimensions of Adaptation to Climate Change in Vietnam

This working paper, published by the World Bank Group, focuses on the social implications of climate change adaptation in Vietnam. The country is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of a changing climate owing to its substantial coastline, relatively underdeveloped rural regions and its high dependence on agriculture. The report’s key outputs include: the identification of key socio-economic and biophysical areas of vulnerability, an assessment of Vietnam’s institutional and policy framework for adaptation, a local assessment of existing and potential adaptation options and practices and the development of participatory scenarios of adaptation pathways that might be chosen in the future.
