2. Background: Flood Proofing and Drainage for medium-sized coastal cities in Vietnam to adapt to Climate change Project - Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Component

In Vietnam, coastal cities are increasingly threatened by climate change through extreme weather events and rising sea levels. Most of the cities are inadequately prepared for flooding from rivers, the sea and intense rainfall. As a result communities must adapt to a higher flood risk. Thus, the capability of the local population and governmental authorities in responding to emergencies and disasters needs to be strengthened. Frequent and severe flooding increased by climate change will continue to cause damages and losses unless risk reduction and adaptation strategies are implemented on all levels and across all sectors. The aim of the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) component of the project is to reduce the vulnerability and increase the capacity of the local government and the affected communities to better prepare and adapt to flood risks in the two target cities, Quy Nhon and Tuy Hoa. Supported by the German International Development Cooperation Agency (GIZ) in its cooperation with the Ministry of Construction and the respective People’s Committee of Binh Dinh and Phu Yen, Vietnam Red Cross (VNRC) and German Red Cross (GRC) support the local authorities and civil societies in developing potential synergies between DRM and CCA.

At the beginning of the project (June - July 2014), GRC and VNRC have conducted in 6 targeted wards a Baseline survey to assess the Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP survey) of households in Disaster Preparedness and Response. The selection of areas to survey has been done using a centric systematic area sampling approach, and Door counting with systematic sampling approach has been used for the selection of the households to interview (200 interviewees per wards). The initial results of the Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) indicated that knowledge and practices of local people in disaster preparedness and response in both Tuy Hoa and Quy Nhon remained poor. This raised the need for developing a checklist for Disaster Preparedness & Response for Households adapted to the local context of Quy Nhon and Tuy Hoa and to enhance the awareness of local population on those precaution and evacuation measures through trainings and communication campaigns. As a result, those activities have been the core of the project implementation at ward and household levels.

In early December 2015, after project activities completion, GRC and VNRC will conduct an End-line KAP survey following the same methodology with that for the Baseline survey to highlight the project contribution and inform one of the overarching project indicators: ‘The share of households in urban areas with high flood risk in Tuy Hoa and Quy Nhon that will comply with the new standardized precaution and evacuation guideline for floods, increases from 0% to 50% in 2015 and 70% in 2016’.
