Thua Thien-Hue (VNA) – The Luxembourg Government has pledged 2 million EUR in non-refundable aid to support the central province of Thua Thien-Hue’s climate change response project through the Global Climate Partnership Fund.

The 2.3 million EUR project will be carried out in 30 months in 11 communes in Quang Dien district and nine communes in Phu Vang district. The remaining 0.3 million EUR comes from local corresponding budget.

The project aims to enhance local capacity to respond to climate change.

The first component of the project, called “capacity”, focuses on raising public awareness on climate change response. Infrastructure facilities to cope with climate change in the targeted areas will be set up in the second component while management measures will be promoted in the third component to preserve natural resources and develop markets for organically-cultivated products, a new and sustainable sector for the region.-VNA
