Bringing Social Justice into Climate Change Adaptation in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam
What could transformative adaptation that takes climate change as an opportunity to tackle root causes of poverty, inequality and environmental destruction look like in the case of Ho Chi Minh City? Findings from the project Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change in Coastal Cities illustrate the social justice implications of adaptation policies in the context of urban informality and resettlement, and identify entry points for transformative change.
UNRISD Research and Policy Briefs aim to improve the quality of development dialogue. They situate the Institute’s research within wider social development debates, synthesize its findings and draw out issues for consideration in decision-making processes. They provide this information in a concise format that should be of use to policy makers, scholars, activists, journalists and others.
