Which impacts does climate change have on the sea, the coasts, and on regional agriculture in Central Vietnam? How can renewable energy contribute to climate protection and which positive side effects can be reached through climate mitigation measures? These and other questions were the focus of attention during the Second Summer School on Climate Change in Central Vietnam, organised by UfU in cooperation with the Mientrung Institute from the Vietnamese Academy of Sciences. The event was supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation and took place last weekend in the city of Hue, Vietnam.

Approximately 40 participants – young academics and environmental activists with a variety of professional backgrounds – participated in workshops on four different topics: Clamte Change and Oceans, Climate Change and Agriculture, Renewable Energy, and Co-Benefits of Climate Mitigation Measures.

A special highlight were the field trips: The participants visited a coast stretch that is severely affected by impacts of climate change, a restored mangrove forest, an organic garden and an urban gardening project, several renewable energy projects throughout the city, and an eco-friendly tourist company that is active in climate protection.
