Mangroves for Climate Change Adaptation: The Case of Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam
Le Thi Hanh
Agriculture and Development Notes, 2011, vol. 1, No 2, 2 pages
Responding to climate change is currently a high priority on the political program of Vietnam. With a coastline of more than 127 km long, the province of Thua Thien Hue in Central Vietnam is expected to be affected by rising sea levels. This region experiences natural disasters which are projected to occur with increasing frequency and intensity. Every two to three years, Hue and its adjacent areas suffer from big floods. Although building an embankment system around the city and the historical sites has been proposed, this is not an option as this does not preserve the landscape of Hue City and its coastal tourist areas.
