To enhance the flood resilience of urban communities, the project will work towards the restoration, conservation and sustainable management of natural retention and drainage areas in Hue City, central Vietnam. These bottom-up nature-based solutions will provide a means to strengthen the role of women in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Together with local and regional authorities and stakeholders from civil society, the project seeks to overcome existing gender differences that make women especially vulnerable to the negative impacts of floods.
