Mekong Delta Climate Resilience Programme (MCRP)

The Mekong Delta Climate Resilience Programme (MCRP) is a development cooperation programme co-financed by the Governments of Germany, Switzerland and of Viet Nam. MCRP is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fϋr Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Ministry of Construction and the 13 Mekong Delta provinces.






The climate-resilient management of natural resources in coastal areas of the Mekong Delta
is improved to ensure sustainable development in the region.






The project supports Vietnamese partners in establishing an institutional framework for the regional coordination of climate-resilient development in the Mekong Delta. On behalf of the German and Swiss Government, GIZ provides technical advice on policy and planning to help clarify mandates, responsibilities, and interfaces. The project also incorporates a coordinated package of training measures for government officials.

Gender equality (gender mainstreaming) is ensured strategically by making it an integral part of the regional coordination mechanism in the form of gender-sensitive guidelines.

To improve the regional coordination of investment planning, GIZ and its partners are designing feasibility studies and testing technologies and solutions. These include sustainable value chains for selected agricultural products and aquaculture that are adapted to climate change and altered environmental conditions while also having market potential.

The use of innovative technologies that have been adapted to climate change is also being stepped up. The focus here is on inter-provincial land and water management and on coastal protection, using methods such as remote sensing with lightweight drones in areas of erosion on the coast, along canals and in mangrove forests. Data processing coupled with satellite-based big data for climate forecasts or for coastlines and shorelines enables infrastructure investment decisions to be made.

The project builds on a holistic regional approach to coastal planning that was developed in a predecessor project for integrated coastal management in Viet Nam (the Integrated Coastal Management Programme, ICMP). This inter-provincial focus on the coast is now being extended to include all 13 provinces of the Mekong Delta. The project also involves all relevant state actors at national and provincial level.

Together with the private sector and civil society, these actors are developing value chains, technologies, and solutions.
