Viet Nam: Vulnerable coastal communities to get housing support

Source(s): Viet Nam News, Vietnam News Agency

Between 2018 and 2022, 782 poor coastal families in central Thanh Hóa Province will receive a fund of more than VNĐ4 billion (US$177,700) from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to build reinforced houses, ensuring their safety during floods.

The fund will be allotted soon to help build or upgrade more flood-resistant houses in flood-prone areas.

In the first stage, Thanh Hóa will build some 200-340 new storm- and flood-resistant houses. The design is improved to better protect vulnerable households from the increasing frequency and intensity of flooding and super storms resulting from climate change. Many houses started construction this month.
