Climate Resilient Rural Infrastructure Project in Northern Viet Nam Successfully Promotes Application of Bioengineering Techniques

This project aimed to demonstrate and promote the application of bioengineering1 measures in road and riverbank slope protection and stabilization to build the resilience of local communities to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. The project also sought to familiarize local experts with bioengineering techniques and to initiate mainstreaming of climate resilient green infrastructure development in Vietnam through pilot projects and targeted capacity building. Pilot demonstration sites were used to test a range of bioengineering techniques and formed the physical basis of knowledge transfer to relevant line ministry staff through training and site visits. The project illustrated that nature-based solutions can be applied to prevent serious erosion and can increase the resilience of local communities. It also demonstrated...
