Vietnam - Natural Disasters Risk Management Project : restructuring : Main report (English)

The objectives of the Natural Disasters Risk Management Project for Vietnam are the establishment and implementation of comprehensive natural disaster risk management framework to assist the Government to: (a) strengthen the capacity of national and local disaster risk management institutions; (b) reduce the vulnerability to flood and storm hazards in project areas; and (c) increase the efficiency of post-disaster recovery and reconstruction efforts. The executing agency, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) in close collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE), has prepared a detailed implementation plan for the remaining activities towards project completion. Agreement on the pending contents and procedures for an International Competitive Bidding (ICB) procurement of hydromet equipment is expected to occur in the coming weeks enabling the start of the bidding process in July 2011. If this does indeed occur it is expected that the closing date will be extended for a further six months to the end of June 2012 to enable the completion of the procurement and the equipment installation. This will be the second extension of the project. As a result, a total extension period of 18 months will be made from the original closing date.
