Women, EbA, and flood resilience in Centre Viet Nam
In the last years, flooding has increasingly affected thousands of citizens of Thừa Thiên-Huế province in Central Vietnam.
Especially the low-lying coastal areas and Hue city have been repeatedly affected by severe flooding from the sea, rivers and heavy rainfall. Along with climate change, population growth and increasing urbanisation, the people of the province are highly affected by the impacts of flood hazards. Especially vulnerable to the impacts of flooding are women. Even though they are pivotal managers of natural and environmental resources and have the experience and knowledge to build community resilience, they only hold minor roles at the level of policy formulation. Through a combined approach of using ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) and strengthening the role of women in disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA), the ResilNam project wants to contribute to increasing flood resilience in Thừa Thiên-Huế province.
This documentary project wants to support this innovative approach by providing insights into the every day life of the women involved in ResilNam; making their thoughts and actions understandable and emotionally accessible to an interested public.
