The project works towards mitigating the impacts of climate change on the diverse rural and indigenous communities which inhabit one of Vietnam’s most important river catchments. It will do this by:
- Facilitating youth in the area to research issues that impact directly upon them and feel confident participating in policy discussions surrounding prevention and mitigation strategies to climate change;
- Recording and developing indigenous, historical knowledge and understanding on the impacts, and responses to, climate change;
- Educating the public and policy makers on the threats and environmental challenges facing global populations from large-scale human interference of deltas and;
- Ensuring that the diverse rural and indigenous communities of the Red River Catchment have access to the diverse knowledges/practices that can help mitigate and or assist adaption to a changing landscape resulting from climate change.
The outputs of the project are still ongoing, so stay tuned as we continue to publish papers, produce outreach and share the amazing work of the youth. Several can already be found below:
