The Mekong Delta faces serious risks from climate change.

The forum will seek to deepen the dialogue on climate change risks and adaptive strategies that involve integrated planning and inter-provincial and multi-sectoral collaboration.

It will discuss, through case studies, sustainable and climate resilient livelihoods and models and highlight the role of other stakeholders in scaling up successful models.

It will also brainstorm on the choices of structural and non-structural investments, the typical trade-offs involved, the timing and the economics that will inform integrated and long-term decisions for the Mekong Delta.
