The development objectives of the Mekong Delta Integrated Climate Resilience and Sustainable Livelihoods Project for Vietnam are to enhance tools for climate-smart planning and improve climate resilience of land and water management practices in selected provinces of the Mekong delta in Vietnam. The project comprises of five components. The first component, enhancing monitoring, analytics, and information systems provides the framework for ensuring the capacity to undertake ‘smart investments and cope with anticipated wide-scale environmental changes.

The second component, managing floods in the upper delta objective is to protect and or reclaim the benefits of controlled flooding (flood retention) measures while increasing rural incomes and protecting high-value assets in An Giang, Kien Giang, and Dong Thap provinces.
