Abstract

This paper characterizes eight agro ecological regions of Vietnam based on the vulnerability to climate change. Cross-section data set belonging to a set of variables representing 3 components of vulnerability, ie, exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity were selected for this analysis. The vulnerability was computed based on the standard methodology and regions were mapped based on the extent of vulnerability to climate change. This analysis delineated agro-ecological regions based on the degree of vulnerability, ie, Red River Delta (RRD), North West mountainous (NWM), South east region (SER), Central Highland (CHR), Mekong river delta (MRD) as being vulnerable – very highly vulnerable to climate change.
