Addressing climate change : the World Bank platform in Vietnam (English)

Vietnam is one of the most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change. Climate change is expected to intensify existing risks to natural resources, agriculture, food security, infrastructure, and health and to pose a significant threat to economic and human development and the environment. Recognizing the challenges posed by climate change and the opportunity to decouple growth and carbon intensity to shift to sustainable and low carbon growth, the government has made good progress in establishing a stronger policy and institutional framework to respond to climate change. The World Bank’s engagement in Vietnam is focused on three pillars: adaptation, mitigation, and cross-cutting policy and institutional framework. In addition to mainstreaming climate change in projects and research, the Bank is focusing on climate change through two major initiatives: the Vietnam climate change partnership and the Vietnam climate change development policy operation. The World Bank’s climate change engagement is also closely linked to the Bank’s disaster risk management work.
