EU_logo_2The European Union – Focused-Food Production Assistance to the Vulnerable Sectors (EU-FPAVAS) is a project being implemented by SEARCA in partnership with CIRAD-France and provincial governments of the twin provinces of Camarines, Mindoro, and Misamis.

Recognizing that climate change is one of the most compelling environmental issues of our time, one of the project components is mainstreaming climate change adaptation (CCA) in local development plans. Mainstreaming is “the integration of policies and measures that addresses climate change into development planning and sectoral decision-making” (Climate Change Commission, 2010). It encompasses linking and networking with institutions in order to better address the adverse impacts of climate change.

RiceClimate change is changing most of our traditional agricultural practices as the seasonal cycle and rainfall pattern have changed, droughts have become more frequent, violent stresses of cyclones, earthquakes, prolonged floods, salt water intrusion are increasing day by day. The average temperature has increased in the summer while winter season has shortened. There are some projections about climate change that are matter of concern for Bangladesh such as: temperature would rise 1.30 C by 2030 and 2.60 C by 2070, the sea level rise would be up to three feet and a greater part of the costal area would be inundated.

The weather in Vietnam is becoming more and more complicated due to climate change. To minimise losses caused by natural disasters, weather forecasts, particularly for storms and floods should be accurate and timely.

Deputy Director of the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF), Pham Van Duc puts forwards three reasons for accurate weather forecasts.

Firstly, this year’s storm season has come later than every year with a fewer number of storms and tropical low pressure operating in the East Sea. Since the beginning of this year, eight storms have hit the East Sea in which, one tropical depression and three storms directly affected Vietnam, particularly the northern region.
