ASSESSMENT OF VULNERABILITY OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON CROP AND LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION, ADAPTION IN VIETNAMPham Thi To Oanh and Tran Ngoc Thin
This research presents the impacts of prioritized climate change adaption options for crop and livestock production. Vietnam is one of the most vulnerable countries to the effects of climate change. The sector, comprising of 2 main sub-sectors has been affected seriously by climate change with high VI index (from 0.448 to 0.605 on crop, from 0.201 to 0.396 to livestock production). Adaptive measures (SRI, IBM, VGP, ICP, LCT, ICH, GFC,..) from crop, animal livestock have lower cost and higher benefits in comparison with conventional model, especially VietGAP pomelo, integrated coffee, integrated maize and bean, system of rice intensification; local chicken with high tolerance, improving cattle house for pig and biogas; green forage crop.
