Name:Viet Nam: Drought and Salt Water Intrusion – Situation Update No. 2 (as of 14 April 2016)
Description:

This update is issued on behalf of the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Viet Nam. It covers the period from 23 March to 14 April 2016. The next update will be issued as new information becomes available.

Following the briefing of partners held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on 15 March 2016, six inter-agency rapid assessment teams visited Ben Tre, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, Gia Lai, Kon Tum and Kien Giang Provinces to conduct an assessment of humanitarian needs. The joint assessment teams were supported by representatives from MARD, MoH, PACCOM, INGOs and UN.

The assessment was conducted during 21-24 March 2016. The focus of the teams was on identifying priority humanitarian needs along with other immediate needs of the affected communities. To aid the assessment process, existing inter-agency guidance and tools for emergency needs assessment were used, along with supplementary questions to adapt to the specific drought situation and context.

This consolidated assessment report presents immediate humanitarian needs along with other priority needs that are likely to be needed in responding to the challenges posed by drought and saltwater intrusion. As such, this report does not include identification of longer term development and/or socio-economic needs. As the teams visited only six of the affected provinces, there remains a gap in collecting information from other affected provinces.

This assessment report will help inform discussions and reach agreement on a joint response strategy to mitigate the impact of drought and saltwater intrusion. In supporting the people and Government of Viet Nam, we have a collective responsibility to agree on a joint response strategy so that required resources can be mobilized to meet these needs.
