Vietnam Resilience Natural Hazards Ph2

Based upon partner needs assessments, other reviews and discussions with local partners at different administrative levels within the GoV and with other stakeholders, the Consortium has proposed specific activities in the Risk Management Policy and Practice sector. To implement these activities, the Consortium partners bring together their combined technical expertise in DRR and CCA to address cross-cutting issues, using a complementary set of experiences, skills and competencies. The Consortium partners, over the past years have engaged extensively with GoV counterpart agencies to align the proposed strategy with the national DRM policy framework and ensure innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions that may be replicated easily and scaled up within the GoV programs. For example, the partners will seek to add value to the GoV approaches for local level disaster risk assessments, ensuring the integration of climate change, gender and social inclusions issues and developing pragmatic approaches to urban resilience, including digital mapping/geo-tagging and the use of GIS as well as the utilization of mobile multi-hazard apps and SMS for early warning and timely hazard and first aid information provision.
