Children will form the core of a 10 billion VND (470,000 USD) climate change project financed by the Australian Government through the Save the Children.

The project, launched in Tam Ky city, the central province of Quang Nam, on December 16, targets seven coastal and riverside communes in the locality, aiming to enhance the capacity of children and the community as a whole in climate change adaptation.

It will integrate climate change resilience into local socio-economic development plans, schools’ curricula and activities of teenagers’ clubs, organise training courses for teachers and associations’ officials and build community-based climate change adaptation models.

The project will ran until December 2014.-VNA
