Authorities of the central province of Thua Thien – Hue on March 26 approved a Luxembourg-funded climate change adaptation project in the locality.

The project costs about 2.3 million EUR. Of the sum, 2 million EUR is sourced from the Luxembourg government’s non-refundable aid via the Global Climate Partnership Fund, while the remaining comes from the local budget.

The project will be carried out in 30 months in 29 communes in Quang Dien, Phu Vang, and Phu Loc districts, aiming to enhance local capacity to respond to climate change.

Its first component, “capacity”, focuses on raising public awareness of climate change response.

Infrastructure facilities to cope with climate change in targeted areas will be set up in the second component, while management measures will be promoted in the third one to preserve natural resources and develop markets for organically-cultivated products.
