Ca Mau plans over $827 million for climate change response

The sum, mostly sourced from the State budget and official development assistance, will be spent on 55 prioritised tasks and projects.

A lion’s share of the amount, 5 trillion VND, will be spent on building 100 km of sea dyke on its eastern coast, while 1.2 trillion VND will be used to upgrade drainage systems in Ca Mau city; and 1.5 trillion VND to boost climate change adaptation capacity for urban areas in local districts and cities.

The Ca Mau People’s Committee said between now and 2030, it will step up the monitoring of climate change via the development of advanced hydro-meteorological observation stations to promptly update public agencies and locals on relevant information.

 

In the past years, climate change led to the loss of nearly 10,000 hectares of coastal land and forest in Ca Mau.

On a larger scale, the Mekong Delta has been facing more severe heat, drought, saline intrusion, and coastal erosion as a result of global warming./. VNA
