Climate change is a global challenge of 21st century, said Dr. Le Quoc Doanh. According to the World Bank, having Red River Delta and Mekong Delta, Viet Nam is one of the five most vulnerable countries for climate change and sea level rise. The climate change consequences tremendously and negatively affect poverty reduction and national development goals in water resource, agriculture, food security and health sectors in the deltas and coasts. 


Similar to the Mekong Delta, the Red River Delta is facing climate change challenge. It is getting more unpredictable and complex because extreme natural disasters destroy infrastructure and sustainable livelihoods. Such problems can not be solved by only governmental efforts but supports from people, private sector, NGOs and donors are in need.


At the symposium, challenges that the Red River Delta is facing with had been shared calling for an adequate attention. The Symposium objectives are for better cooperation among stakeholders to solve problems caused by climate change.

Mr. Ted Osius remarked that climate change is a global challenge, and we should maintain cooperative spirit in problem solving. Viet Nam is one of the most vulnerable area and the Red River Delta is particularly at risk from climate change. Communities in the United States are facing similar challenges. Viet Nam and United States, therefore, will cooperate in response to climate change and its consequences.


The Red River Delta is a prioritized area for the United States’ grants - the ambassador said. USAID projects in the area include Viet Nam Forests and Deltas – VFD, Ha Long – Cat Ba Alliance, US Sister Cities Disaster Preparedness initiatives. American welcomes any opportunity to collaborate with other development partners and donors to support the Red River Delta in response to climate change. 


The Symposium has reached a consensus in which five provinces will continue to complete climate change Action Plan and establish a climate change sharing information network. VFD Programme will be the focal point in fostering provincial ideas to attract investment.


In general, the Red River Delta suffers many impacts from climate change but get less attention than Mekong Delta. Currently, there is not any research on models to show the adaptation methodology for the Red River Delta. The Symposium showed the ideas to attract investment and foster cooperation: strengthen mangrove forest ecosystem, develop adaptive agriculture system and improve water management capacity for Red River and Thai Binh River Basin to reduce negative impacts of climate change to the North of Viet Nam.
