Enhanced capacity for climate-risk-informed infrastructure investment planning

The results workshop of the global IKI project “Enhancing Climate Services for Infrastructure Investments (CSI)” was jointly organized by the MPI and GIZ on 25 October in Hanoi. The aims of the workshop were to share the results of the CSI project, gather feedback and recommendations from partner organizations and relevant authorities, and develop a joint vision for future activities. The workshop was attended by 21 representatives from the MPI and core partners: MONRE, MARD, representatives of German Embassy in Vietnam, and relevant agencies. The leading organisation, the Department of Science, Education, Nature Resources and Environment (DSENRE under MPI) highlighted the project’s achievements. Core partners also presented the CSI results as a story of how climate services have become part of infrastructure planning processes in Vietnam.

In Vietnam, infrastructure investments are highly vulnerable to climate change. There is a pressing need for methods and capacity for climate-risk-informed infrastructure investment planning. Climatologists from the Southern Hydro-Meteorological Regional Center (SRHMS) worked together with engineers from the Southern Institute of Water Resource and Planning (SIWRP) to pilot tools and methods to analyse climate risks for infrastructure, developing climate services as a basis for risk-informed planning for the Cai Lon–Cai Be sluice Gate Construction Project. Cai Lon–Cai Be is an important state-funded project under the management of the investor – PMU 10.

Acknowledging the added value of the climate risk assessment method introduced and tested in the context of CSI, the partner ministries discussed ways to further disseminate the results and climate risk assessment practices, while at the same time embedding climate risk assessment approaches in national processes related to adaptation planning, green growth, and socio-economic development planning.
