Marie-Noëlle Woillez holds a Ph.D. in Climate Modeling and conducts research on the impacts of climate change in AFD’s countries of operation.
During this interview, Marie-Noëlle Woillez evokes the future for the Mekong Delta which is a strategic place in Vietnam, one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change. AFD is conducting a research project, GEMMES Vietnam, in partnership with IRD, and funded by the 2050 Facility, to assess the socio-economic impacts on the country and adaptation strategies to cope with them. This project contributes to the public policy dialogue with the Vietnamese government through the production of new scientific results by an interdisciplinary team of Vietnamese, French and international researchers. The latter has placed adaptation at the heart of its strategy, particularly in the Mekong Delta region, but also through the national adaptation plan, its five- and ten-year strategic investment plans, and finally in the framework of its national contributions (NDC).
