Under the project “Strengthening the resilience of smallholder agriculture to climate change-induced water insecurity in the Central Highlands and south-central coast regions of Vietnam” (SACCR), the Green Climate Fund supported Vietnam 30.2 million USD as non-refundable assistance to cope with the impacts of climate change. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will implement the project. The project will be carried out in five provinces of Khánh Hòa, Bình Thuận, Ninh Thuận, Đắk Nông, and Đắk Lắk.
The project aims to empower vulnerable farming households to handle climate-related risks to agricultural production in the Central Highlands and South-Central regions. Target groups are small farmers, especially women and ethnic people susceptible to climate change to adapt to natural disasters.
