Objective:
Vietnam is among the maritime Southeast Asian countries affected by natural hazards that climate change is amplifying, such as severe storms, cyclones, typhoons, floods, and coastal erosion. With an extensive coastline, 70% of Vietnam’s population resides in coastal communities that are exposed to the adverse impact of rising sea levels. According to data released by the National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, over the past 30 years, natural disasters in Vietnam have incurred economic losses of about 1-1.5 percent of the GDP nation each year. The World Bank has ranked Vietnam among the five countries globally likely to be the most impacted by climate change.
With the aim to bolster Vietnam’s Disaster preparedness and to enhance U.S. – Vietnamese collaboration in disaster response, U.S. Commercial Service Vietnam, in coordination with  Vietnam Disaster Management Authority - Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Development and Ministry of National Defense, is organizing a webinar series to promote U.S. industry’s innovative solutions to combat and prevent natural calamities caused by climate change.
