This policy brief presents the key messages related to the application of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in Vietnam based on the development and field-testing of the framework. It also provides guidance for mainstreaming and scaling up of EbA in the policies and planning processes in Vietnam.
It first introduces an operational framework for EbA jointly developed by World Bank, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural resources ISPONRE under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE), in response to Vietnam’s need for a detailed guidance to assess and implement EbA. It then presents some recommendations and guidance for mainstreaming EbA in climate change and sustainable development planning.
