Study On Impact Of Climate Change On Agriculture And Food Security

Case studies in Viet Nam


This study is an attempt to underline the plight of poor farming community and their increased food insecurity due to the impact of climate change. The proposed area for the research is located in Ha Tinh province which is situated the semi-mountainous central coastal region of Vietnam. This area is very much vulnerable to typhoons, flash floods and drought. Thus, the extreme climate conditions have left the people of this province extremely vulnerable to multiple hazards. Two districts of Ha Tinh are chosen to conduct survey: Vu Quang and Loc Ha districts. Vu Quang represents mountainous area whole Loc Ha is a representative of costal or estuary area.
