At present, ADRA is implementing 7 projects and programs in 5 provinces of Vietnam: Can Tho, Vinh Long, Cao Bang, Thai Binh and Tay Ninh.

There has been little attention, national and international, on responding to the rising impacts of climate change laid in the Northern mountainous region of Vietnam. Specifically, the ethnic minority groups that occupy the main population in the area have been in substantially underprivileged situation. A dominant number of them are poor farmers, lacking competences and resources to uplift the living condition. These two factors combined are intensifying the delay of development progress and widen the gap of these ethnic minority groups with the majority..

The Community-based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) approach is to build people’s capacity of coping with disaster risks and reducing their vulnerability thereby developing safer and more resilient communities. This ADH-funded project, so-titled Enhance community capacity in Community-based Disaster Risk Management planning and implementation (or abbreviated as BRICK II) employs the CBDRM approach and  takes place in 3 distinctive locations: Can Tho, Binh Thuan and Bac Kan. This is the first joint-effort of 3 organizations, in which ADRA pioneers in disability inclusion, World Vision takes lead in initiatives with children and CARE focuses on women.

Vietnam is classified one of the most natural disasters prone and severely affected by climate change countries. The Mekong River Delta (MRD) lying in the South hits top three of the most vulnerable deltas to the sea level rising and extreme weather (along with the Nile Delta in Egypt and the Ganges Delta in Bangladesh). The MRD covers an area of over 39,000 square kilometers, has 18 million people and consists of 13 provinces contributing to 53% total agricultural products. Over 90% of rice exports, 65% of aquaculture outputs and 70% of the fruit come from this region.

The Community and Economic Development for Livelihood Improvement Project (CEDLIP) is funded by Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland through ADRA Finland Foundation. The project takes place from 2015 - 2017 in Bao Lac District, one of the most remote and poorest districts of Cao Bang province.

The two selected communes of Bao Lac district,  which are Thuong Ha and Bao Toan, have 6 ethnic minority groups, 49% of  the households in the area remaining in poverty. The issue of improving livelihood lies more deeply than just permanent poverty or lack of opportunities for the residents. One of major obstacles detected by ADRA Vietnam staff is the absence of effective mechanism for community-led and people-centered participation in livelihood development.

Your Gift Lights up Future Lives

Sponsoring a child is a powerful way to build up better future for everyone

This is for real, and as simple as that.

In Vietnam, thousands of children grow up in poverty. Every day, they face threats of lacking food, clean water, education and likelihood of being socially excluded. ADRA in Vietnam kicks start the Child Sponsorship Program, in order to connect generous donors with kids in special needs.

Climate change is placing more visible impacts on the region of Mekong River Delta. While sunny season lasts longer with high temperature, causing acute drought in many areas; the rainy season in turn gets shorter with unstable rainfalls, rendering unpredicted flooding. Accompanied by rising sea level, saltwater intrusion heads further beyond the coast, directly affecting the interior provinces such as Can Tho and Vinh Long. All of these not only concern the human’s safety, but also hinder the efforts of improving social and economic life at locality.

In order to address the urgent issue, ADRA in Vietnam implements the Livelihood Improvement for Building Resilient Community Project (LIBRE) in Vung Liem and Tra On district of Vinh Long province. The project is funded by New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, led by ADRA New Zealand, developed and directly executed by ADRA in Vietnam. This is a 4-year-project commencing in 2013.
