Recognizing that climate change is a major threat to economic development, the Government of Viet Nam has made it a key priority to address the impacts of climate change. In December 2008, by Decision No 158/QD-TTg, the government approved the National Target Program (NTP) to respond to climate change. The NTP mandated a comprehensive effort to assess climate change impacts on sectors and provinces, and develop action plans. The government has identified international engagement and technical assistance (TA) from development partners as crucial elements for the successful implementation of the NTP, and requested assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The proposed policy and advisory TA (PATA) will support two ministries, a province, and two cities in developing and/or instituting action plans for effective implementation of the NTP.
