UNDP-funded programme raises awareness of climate change

An event funded by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) in Vietnam to raise awareness of climate change has been held for students from the Central Construction University in the central province of Phu Yen.
 

At the event (Source: http://www.dangcongsan.vn)
Phu Yen is one of the central coastal provinces most heavily affected by climate change. The activity aimed to highlight the role of low-cost and resilient housing design, and share knowledge related to climate change in coastal areas.

The event also offered a good chance for students to show their initiative and produce practical designs that benefits the community and minimizes the impact of climate change.

The programme was organized under the framework of an innovation competition themed "Designing resilient houses - sustainable communities with climate change in the coastal areas”, which aimed to explore viable designs for resilient homes that can withstand floods and storms.

The competition is part of a project themed “Improving the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities to climate change related impacts in Viet Nam” supported by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the UNDP and the Government of Vietnam.
