Rethinking resilience: social protection in the context of climate change in Vietnam

Source(s):  CARE International (CI)

The second issue of CARE's Learning Series offers an outline of the concept of climate responsive social protection and presents the rationale and recommendations for further development of this approach in Vietnam. This rationale is supported by case studies and examples from Vietnam and around the world.

In recent years, the importance of social protection, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction has risen in prominence both internationally and in Vietnam. The common goal of these three disciplines is to support resilience against shocks and stresses among vulnerable people. Integrating the three disciplines in policy, planning and programming presents huge opportunities for multiplying resilience. For Vietnam, a nation where development is jeopardized by climate change and disasters, and where inequality prevents households most at risk from climate change from accessing resources for adaptation, the question is whether resilience can be fostered at all without an integrated approach.
