Experiences of integrating agriculture in sectoral and national adaptation planning processes: Case study Viet Nam
This case study on Viet Nam is part of a series that describes the steps taken to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), with an emphasis on adaptation in agriculture (including forestry, livestock and fisheries). This series will provide national policymakers with valuable information from colleagues and counterparts in Asia, Africa and Latin America who are on the same NAP journey, to address the multiple challenges posed by climate change to agriculture sectors and livelihoods. The preparation of this case study is based on extensive reviews of country reports and publications, as well as interviews with the NAP-Ag country coordinators, NAP-Ag team members and representatives from responsible agencies such as the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) of Viet Nam.
