The project "Impacts of climate change and adapting bio-security measures for aquaculture in northern Viet Nam" is proposed to the Danish government for funding and scheduled to be implemented from April 2011 to April 2014. The main objectives of the project are to assess the impacts of climate change to aquaculture in Northern Viet Nam, and propose adapting measures for sustaining aquaculture development and improving biosecurity. The project is managed by CEDMA/RIA1 as the main responsible institution in collaboration with other institutes and universities in the field of research. Expected outputs of the project are: (i) Impacts of climate change to aquaculture area, infrastructure, and commercial aquaculture species; Predicting and adapting GIS models. (ii) Increased biosecurity including disease of commercial fish species and food safety: Prevention and treatment strategies, food safety improving regulation. PhD and MSc of fish disease, food safety and GIS. (iii) Sustained livelihood for aquaculture farmers including policy recommendation; adapting measures reports; adapting techniques, demonstrations. Research papers will be published in international journals. Reports, recommend policies, regulation, will be disseminated through the Vietnam’s administrative system, target bodies, public media, project website.


Midterm report 2016:
In general, the project is going well and has shown good progress. Most of objectives, outputs and outcomes have been achieved such as: GIS map and a GIS model has been developed. Policy recommendations and adapting measures have been published in reports and a handbook which have been delivered to key stakeholders. Four MSc students have graduated and the two PhD students show good progress and are expected to graduate by October 2017.
