Earth observation, mapping and analysis of nature and infrastructure
FloodAdaptVN aims to support decision-making processes of local stakeholders in such a way that flood risks in central Vietnam can be minimised by means of adapted risk reduction and adaptation measures. The project team investigates and compares ecosystem-based approaches that can be integrated into flood risk management in the study area for adaptive and sustainable urban development. Implementation aspects for disaster risk reduction are investigated by FloodAdaptVN as well as prioritisation factors for successful risk management. In order to support local authorities in developing practical measures, the project generates a sound information base on flood-prone regions. Central to this is the »capacity development« strategy, which is intended to enable Vietnamese decision makers to implement successful risk management in the long term and also guarantees an increase in knowledge and experience on the part of the German actors involved.
