Disaster and Climate change in Viet nam Natural Disaster: 1.Natural disasters in Vietnam have been increasingly severe in terms of magnitude, frequency and volatility 2.Natural disasters such as typhoons, floods and droughts have caused significant losses, and asset damage equivalent to 1.5% of GDP Climate change: 1.Vietnam is one of the 5 countries worst affected by climate change. Climate change will worsen natural disasters 2.If the sea level rises by 1 meter, 90% of the Mekong River Delta area will be flooded during the flood season, and 71% will be salted during the dry season, and about 20 million people will be affected in terms of housing.

….In order to promote and implement disaster risk reduction activities in the context of climate change, it is very necessary to establish an official national forum which attracts extensive participation from organizations, donors, NGOs and individuals, both domestically and internationally. I hope that this National Platform will be a good starting point based on which a national forum can be established annually. And after this forum, I would suggest that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development coordinate with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and other ministries, localities and related agencies to promote the establishment of the national platform for information sharing, institutional development, contributing to effective implementation of natural disaster prevention, response and mitigation……. ……Today, the most urgent work is to link climate change and disaster prevention, response and mitigation. In fact, due to the impacts of climate change, disasters have been, and will continue to be increasingly severe. ….
The National Platform will be established based on the existing organizations which have been working on the field of DRR. (Natural Disaster Mitigation Partnership - NDMP) Recommending new memberships, donors, NGOs and other stakeholders involved in DRR in Viet Nam. The Platform, in the shape of a partnership, will have as members the government, donors, NGOs, academic institutions, regional/international organizations, media and private sector representatives. Under the NDMP, MARD is the Chair for the partnership. There are a also number of different departments and levels within MARD that should be involved in the National Platform, including the Vice Minister for MARD, DMC, DDMFSC, ICD, ISG, OCCA, and MoNRE, etc What should be the structure of the National Platform in Viet Nam?
To serve as a coordination mechanism to enhance multi- stakeholder collaboration and coordination for the sustainability of DRR activities To foster an enabling environment between stakeholders for awareness-raising on DRR, integrating DRR into development policies, planning and programmes; To discuss and address the urgent need issues on DRR in context of CCA in order to strengthen and maximize the effective of DRR activities Objectives of National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation
