Nguyen Thuy Lan Chi, Phan Dao, Miroslav Kyncl

Abstract


In the recent decades, the Mekong River Delta (MRD) has suffered quite significantly impacts of climate change (CC). Fluctuations of weather elements and sea level rise has caused adverse changes, namely: the appearance of unusual high and low levels of annual floods, more and more intense storms, more severe droughts, forest fires, river erosion, cyclones, tidal surges appear increasingly more dangerous. Traditional adaptation measures to the environmental conditions may be unsuitable in the context of climate change in the MRD. This paper summarizes some of the new adaptation measures that scientists and policy planners have proposed for the area to cope with the negative impacts of climate change.
