3 Disaster and Climate change in Viet nam Natural Disaster:Natural disasters in Vietnam have been increasingly severe in terms of magnitude, frequency and volatilityNatural disasters such as typhoons, floods and droughts have caused significant losses, and asset damage equivalent to 1.5% of GDPClimate change:Vietnam is one of the 5 countries worst affected by climate change. Climate change will worsen natural disastersIf 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.
4 ORGANIZATION CHART OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE FOR FLOOD AND STORM CONTROL
5 NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR NATURAL DISASTER PREVENTION, RESPOND AND MITIGATION UP TO 2020 The principles used for disaster prevention, response and mitigation in Vietnam is the “four-on-the-spot” (command on the spot, man-power on the spot, materials on the spot and logistics on the spot) and proactive prevention, timely response, quick and effective recovery.Radical Flood Prevention for the Red river delta and Northern Central RegionActive preparedness, Mitigation and Adaptation for Central RegionLiving together with flood for development for Southern Region
6 A roadmap for establishing National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in Vietnam
7 Basis for establishing the National Platform in Viet Nam? National Strategy for Natural Disaster Prevention, Response and Mitigation to 2020.Action plan for implementing National Strategy for Natural Disaster Prevention, Response and Mitigation to 2020.Community Based Disaster Risk Management ProgramNational target program to respond to climate change.Climate change and sea level rising scenariosAction Plan Framework adapting to Climate change of Agricultural and Rural development sector in stageLaw of Disaster Management (under construction)
8 ……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. ….….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…….
9 What should be the structure of the National Platform in Viet Nam? 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
10 Objectives of National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation To serve as a coordination mechanism to enhance multi- stakeholder collaboration and coordination for the sustainability of DRR activitiesTo 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
