Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation in Vietnam
Hazard, Vulnerability and Risk Mapping
Hazard, vulnerability and risk maps were developed at district and community levels to enable provincial and district staff to make better informed decision making. This component was conducted in collaboration with the Science Department of the Polytechnic University of Marche, Italy. The expert collected and collated information on hazard profile, historical secondary data, primary and secondary indices of vulnerability and calculation of risk related data.
After developing hazard and vulnerability maps, three trainings were conducted in collaboration with the Vietnam Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources on the Use of Spatial Information Products in the three provinces with the aim of assisting provincial and district staff in decision-making.
