Central Mekong Delta Region Connectivity Project: Rapid Climate Change Threat and Vulnerability Assessment

Central Mekong Delta Region Connectivity Project: Rapid Climate Change Threat and Vulnerability Assessment
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB). April 2014
  • This assessment report provides a better understanding of climate change threats to the project infrastructure. It also provides project stakeholders with information necessary for consensus building for the adoption of a robust approach to responding to climate change. The study illustrates that a constrained time frame and limited resources may not be significant impediments to the undertaking of climate risk vulnerability assessments, which can provide valuable information at the project design stage to increase the climate resilience of large investment projects. This study provides (i) a deeper understanding of climate change threats generally in the Mekong basin as well as how the infrastructure will be affected by extreme climate change events; (ii) a better appreciation of the need to incorporate climate change risk assessments and generate a body of knowledge over time; and (iii) a consensus-building tool for project financiers and the government of Viet Nam to adapt a better strategy for climate change response.
