The German Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the German Reconstruction Bank (KFW) have pledged to fund a combined US$7 million for a project to cope with climate change in Vietnam and Laos in next four years, a KFW senior official said.

Of the sum, $6 million will come from the German ministry and the rest from the KFW, the state-run Vietnam News Agency cited Alice Salburg as saying. The project will focus on improving capability of natural reserves,limiting illegally-transported timbers in Vietnam and Laos’ border provinces, restoring forests and reducing carbon dioxide emission in the environment.

The project will be carried out in Vietnam’s central provinces of Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue and Laos’ Salavan and Sekong provinces, Salburg said. Of the $7-million sum, $2.5 million is expected to benefit Thua Thien-Hue, Salburg recently told provincial leaders.

Vietnam is listed among five hardest-hit countries by climate change. If sea level rises one meter, 5 percent of the country’s land, 11 percent of its population and 7 percent of its agricultural land would be affected with the loss estimated at 10 percent of gross domestic product.
