Action Research on Climate-resilient Livelihoods for Land-poor and Land-less People

,

In order to assist the vulnerable communities in Viet Nam to adapt to the emerging climate change effects and improve their climate resilience, CARE in Vietnam implemented the AusAID-funded Integrated Community-based Adaptation in the Mekong (ICAM) Project. The Project was focused on poor communes in An Phu District (An Giang Province) and in Vinh Chau District (Soc Trang Province). The project was specifically targeting the most vulnerable in the two provinces, namely land-less and land-poor households, with a special emphasis on women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities (PWD) through livelihood, disaster risk reduction and capacity building support.

Action Research on Climate-resilient Livelihoods for Land-poor and Land-less People was conducted to develop

– A list of criteria to define and operationalise ‘climate resilient livelihoods

– Detailed information on a few climate resilient livelihood options for the project target groups and recommendations for implementation

To help identify feasible climate resilient livelihoods for the project target groups, the matrix of quadrant was used with 4 different boxes, which together constitute four different possible livelihood development strategies. In addition, two sets of ideas or ‘filters’ were used as the basis for developing the below set of proposed criteria for identifying and selecting Climate Resilient Livelihood Options. Taking the definition and context into account, a set of criteria was developed to help the Project identify livelihood options that were climate resilient. These ‘unpacked’ livelihoods in terms of their sustainability and climate resilience.
