eC2: Study on Climate and Natural Hazard-Induced Migration in Vietnam

Deadline:  20-Jun-2022 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)global-warming-climate-change-tree_1big_stock2

Vietnam is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change. Given Vietnams concentration of both population and industry in low-lying coastal areas and river
deltas, sea level rise poses a particular risk to continued development in the country.
The World Bank East Asia and the Pacific (EAP1) is conducting a Study on Climate and Natural Hazard-Induced Migration in Vietnam. The objective of the research is to better understand how vulnerable population groups in urban and rural settings projected to see high climate induced in- and out-migration are particularly (and differently) affected by climate change, what adaptation measures are currently being employed, and what policy makers and government programs might do to reduce barriers or facilitate opportunities for more effective and inclusive adaptation to climate change. In so doing, the research would help to better understand and respond to disaster risks, to reduce the number of people adversely affected by disasters, and to promote adaptation that leverages community resilience. The World Bank East Asia and the Pacific (EAP1) is looking for a qualified and experienced research firm or organization based in Vietnam to carry out the analytical work. If you encounter technical difficulties while uploading documents, please send an e-mail to the Help Desk at wbgeconsultant@worldbank.org.
