Farmers’ perceptions of and responses to annual flood events in the Vietnamese Mekong River Delta

Title: Farmers’ perceptions of and responses to annual flood events in the Vietnamese Mekong River Delta
Author: Van Kien Nguyen and Kim Alexander
Type: Article
Year: 2014
Description: This chapter reflects on the importance of local perceptions of flooding events and household adaptive capacity and coping strategies used to prepare and respond to annual flooding in the Mekong River Delta. By understanding how local villagers perceive, prepare for and respond to flood threats, the authors suggest that local know¬ledge – in the form of human and social capital – can inform policy and help secure the necessary financial capital to support adaptive capacity and resili¬ence in the face of increasingly variable floods.
