Vietnam is a low-lying and densely populated coastal country that is highly vulnerable to climate change - in particular sea level rise. Its fast-growing economy is predicted to become a significant emitter of GHGs in the near future. USAID is addressing climate change challenges in Vietnam through an integrated mitigation, adaptation, and disaster risk reduction approach. We support adaptation efforts in the Red River and Mekong Deltas to prepare for floods, sea level rise, erosion, and other threats. Clean Energy activities promote energy efficiency, green building standards and technologies, and access to finance. USAID supports the adoption of land use practices to address deforestation and forest degradation, and the necessary policies, skills, and finance for long-term sustainable and climate-resilient economic growth in Vietnam.
