About ICMP

The Integrated Coastal Management Programme (ICMP) is a development programme that is funded by the governments of Viet Nam, Germany and Australia. Its objective is to support the Vietnamese authorities in preparing the coastal area of the Mekong Delta for a changing environment and to lay the foundations for sustainable growth.

The Mekong Delta is home to 17 million people and is Viet Nam’s most important agricultural region. Producing 55 per cent of the country’s rice, the Mekong Delta feeds more than 245 million people worldwide. Thanks to this region, Viet Nam, a country which once suffered from shortages of rice, is now the world’s second largest exporter. The Delta is also the country’s third largest industrial region after the metropolitan areas of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

But the Mekong Delta is facing existential threats. Climate change is leading to rising sea levels, and according to official studies, 39 per cent of the Mekong Delta could be underwater by the year 2100. Some areas of the coast are already eroding at rates of 30 metres a year. The mangrove forests along the coast, which protect the hinterland from floods and storms, are in dramatic decline. In early 2016, the Mekong Delta suffered the most severe drought in 90 years, which together with rising sea levels led to a heavy intrusion of saltwater into rice growing areas. These changes threaten the future of the Mekong Delta and its ability to provide the essential ecosystem services on which the communities of the Delta and millions of people around the world depend. ICMP tackles these interlinked challenges by strengthening the coast of the Mekong Delta.
