( - ADRA’s Regional Workshop keeps on track an effective platform for practitioners and key stakeholders to share, discuss and learn innovative models and best practices of Climate Change Adaptation


ADRA Vietnam PRESS RELEASE (Hanoi, 8 April 2014) A full-day workshop exposed initial results and lessons learned from the SEA:REACti (South East Asia: Regional Environmental Adaptation Climate Change Training and Implementation) project of ADRA Vietnam and ADRA Laos and stimulated extensive sharing and discussions of various initiatives among other represented organizations and agencies.

“2013 Technical Innovation Symposium was our first effort to create a room for a regional dialogue in climate change adaptation (CCA) at community-based level. More than eighty experts and practitioners had enthusiastically shared and exchanged rich studies as well as profiles of practical projects, forming fruits of thought and provoking active interaction for participants. More importantly, this meeting helped trigger ideas for two 8-month pilot projects, conducted in Xieng Khuong (Laos) and Can Tho (Vietnam). This year, we look forward to the extension of topics and discussions on a possibility of up- scaling innovative models”, said by Filip Graovac – ADRA Vietnam’s Director.

Message of SEA: REACTi was again insisted this year, “It’s time to foster proactive, not reactive, resilience to climate change”. The 2014 workshop gathered more than 110 participants from government partners, research institutes, Embassies and donor agencies, NGOs and private sector to disseminate updated findings of scientific research, and facilitate better actions to help translate messages to the local communities and practitioners working in the field.

Eleven intensive presentations, covering three focused themes: 1/ Climate Smart Agriculture and models of livelihood adaptation; 2/ Translation of the national CCA policy into implementation of adaptation projects at the local level; 3/ Private sector involvement in community-based CCA initiatives, were delivered by top notch officials of UNDP, UNIDO, FAO, GIZ, Oxfam, CARE, Plan International, SNV and ADRA. Each of these presentations provoked lively discussions among the participants.

Private sector and community-based CCA initiatives ADRA understands very well the indispensable role of the private entities in cooperating and leading out the development and because of that the 2014 SEA:REACTi Workshop was designed to place a specific focus on sharing the pioneering actions in this sector. These presentations came from the private sector, NGO perspective and those working on connecting the two “distant worlds”.

Next movement

Following the achieved results of SEA: REACTi, ADRA Vietnam will launch a new project focused on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience by May 2014. This is indeed an effort to upscale the model in Can Tho city, where severe impacts of climate change are expected to escalate in the near future. This project continues to be funded by ADRA Australia for an additional two years.

SEA: REACTi is a co-implemented project of ADRA Vietnam and ADRA Laos, funded by ADRA Australia. The project aims at facilitating an informative forum; providing specialized training in sustainable agriculture, natural resource management and climate change adaptation techniques to the local leaders and communities residing in Lower Mekong Basin, and encouraging community-based CCA initiatives.
