Ecosystem-based adaptation has been assessed to effectively enhance the adaptive capacity of people, biodiversity and ecosystem services with multiple co-benefits. EbA is recognised for its potential contribution to flood control, water resources management, heat effects etc. while saving adaptation costs. These characteristics make urban EbA more popular (IPCC, 2022).
The “Support to the Implementation of the Paris Agreement” project (VN-SIPA) is funded by International Climate Initiative (IKI). IKI is an important part of the German government’s international climate finance commitment. The focus of VN-SIPA Project is to support Vietnam in improving the institutional system, and building human resource capacity so that Viet Nam could be ready to fulfill its commitment to the Paris Agreement. At the same time, the Project helps Viet Nam in updating NDC in line with the national circumstances and international context; piloting some mitigation and adaptation actions defined in the Plan.
Under VN-SIPA project, three urban EbA pilots have been implemented in Dong Hoi city, Quang Binh province. They are green walls and green roofs on a public building, water retention areas integrated into a riverside park, and a sustainable drainage system underneath a usually inundated junction.
This sharing session aims to introduce the implemented measures and to discuss further EbA application in the urban context of Vietnam.
