 Highlights of COHED’s work in climate change response

In summer 2012 COHED carried out a research on heat stress and adaptive capacity of low-income workers in Da Nang city – a central coastal city of Vietnam. Other climate change activities include improving community awareness of climate change and piloting adaptation and mitigation measures in production activities and daily life. These are a part of two projects; the  Integrated HIV/AIDS Prevention Programme for Rural Sustainable Poverty Reduction Project in Mai Hich Commune, Hoa Binh Province and Improving the capacity on health care and integration with community development in Tien Luong Commune, Cam Khe District, Phu Tho Province.

The Integrated HIV/AIDS Prevention Programme for Rural Sustainable Poverty Reduction project in Mai Hich Commune, Hoa Binh Province Project has been running  from January 2011 to December 2013. Specific activities planned under this project include:

Capacity building

  • Implementing four training courses on climate change to improve awareness and knowledge on climate change and its impact on local livelihoods and production for local leaders and community leaders. Raising community awareness of  the impact of human activities on climate change.

Adaptation 

  • Forestation campaigns with the active participation of the local community and tourists. 13.3 ha of bare land is re-forested with new trees.
  • Supporting income generation activities to reduce the impact of human activities on the environment. The Eco-eco Tourism Model (economic and ecology tourism) model has been established to create income generation activities for at least 30 households with jobs such as tour guides, shop-owners, food preparation etc.

Mitigation 

  • Designing energy saving stove models to reduce the consumption of wooden fuel. COHED piloted the use of stoves in 11 household in Mai Hich Commune. This newly-improved cooking stove has been highly appreciated by local ethnic farming households. As of November 2012, this newmodel has been replicated in another 117 households in the commune. 
  • Setting up a pilot biogas model to reduce emissions. COHED supported the construction of 11 individual biogas plants and is developing a group-based biogas model.
  • Rehearsing a communal natural disaster simulation scenario (land slide prevention and emergency response) in Mai Hich Commune in April 2012.

Improving health care and integration capacity with community development in Tien Luong Commune, Cam Khe District, Phu Tho Province, the project ran from July 2008 to June 2011.

  • Raising community awareness on environmental conservation by conducting sanitation campaigns. At the end of project, COHED implemented 16 environment sanitation campaigns in Tien Luong Commune with the participation local people and authorities 
  • Supported the construction of seven biogas  plants to reduce green-house gas emissions
  • Coaching famers to apply the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) technique. Farmers in Tien Luong Commune successfully applied the SRI. In June 2011, a delegation of 32 other communes in Cam Khe Province visited and learned about the SRI technique from farmers in Tien Luong.
