Viet Nam: Climate Adaptation through Irrigation Modernization Sector Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52327-001 Status: Proposed

The project will address the development constraints and strengthen resilience in the six provinces including Binh Phuoc in the southeast region; Gia Lai, Kon Tum, and Lam Dong in the central highland region; and Quang Nam and Quang Ngai in the southcentral coastal region to achieve the following outcome: irrigated agriculture in selected provinces modernized and made climate change resilient. There are three outputs with an estimated investment of $150 million: (i) irrigation management services strengthened; (ii) modern irrigation and drainage infrastructure developed; and (iii) efficient on-farm water management practices adopted.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

While Viet Nam ranks sixth worldwide for climate risk exposure in the global climate risk index, climate change poses as one of the biggest threats to future agriculture performance. The frequency and intensity of floods and droughts yearly increases. In 2017, economic loss caused by typhoons in the southcentral coastal region (SCR) in flatlands along the east sea and central highland region (CHR) reached $2.7 billion. The El Nido Southern Oscillation-induced drought in 2014-2016, which was the most severe in the last 90 years, severely affected the livelihood of more than two million people and damaged around 20,000ha crops in CHR and the southeast region.

The irrigation and drainage system developed in CHR and SCR is largely for rice production and is not yet well suited to irrigate high value crops due to insufficient drainage capacity and insensitive water management system. This is a fundamental issue for farmers in CHR and SCR who are aiming to meet the growing demand for safe and quality food products such as coffee, vegetable, pepper, and cashew nuts in both domestic and international markets. Further constraints in irrigation are (i) premature degradation of irrigation and drainage infrastructure because of inefficient operation and maintenance and asset management systems; (ii) poor water governance, largely because of weak enforcement of regulations on economic and workload burden among water users; and (iii) unreliable water resources for irrigation.

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
