The Mekong Delta Emergency – Climate and Environmental Adaptation Strategies to 2050

The Vietnamese Mekong Delta faces increasing climatic and environmental changes, driven by global climate change and/or human activities in the Delta or upstream in the Mekong River Basin. MoNRE and AFD have undertaken an ambitious scientific collaboration around the GEMMES Vietnam project, with the general objective of supporting Vietnam in implementing the Paris Climate Agreement with regard to impacts and adaptation.

Financed by the 2050 Facility, in collaboration with IRD, this new report investigates the consistency between current adaptation plans and scientific knowledge on environmental changes; proposes different possible adaptation options to tackle the corresponding pressures; investigates how intermediary levels of governance could help drive the bio-physical dynamics of the Mekong Delta in a sustainable direction.
