21/01/2014 08:54:20

Danang Climate Change Coordination Office (CCCO) was established under Decision No. 2140/QD-UBND dated March 21, 2011 and was strengthened under Decision No. 3246/QD-UBND dated May 14, 2013 of the Vice Chairman of Danang People's Committee.

1. Establishment
 
The research and study on 3 cities Danang, Binh Dinh and
Can Tho in Phase 2 (2008-2009) of the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilient Network (ACCCRN) sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation show that it is of great importance to establish a government office with full rights and obligations responsible for planning and coordinating climate change response activities, and promoting integration of climate change resilience concept into urban planning.
 

Meanwhile, the National Target Program for Climate Change Response requires local governments to develop climate change action plans. Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has provided guidance on this issue, however, technical and human resources for implementing these actions plances are still limited at the city level. The establishment of a Climate Change Coordination Office (CCCO) will help strengthen the capacity of local authorities in planning and implementation of climate change adaptation activities  systematically, as well as promote connection with other cities in Vietnam and the world for experience sharing
