Formatted abstract
The Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve (KGBR) was established in 2006 and encompasses
much of the coast line and adjacent marine areas of the Province as well as U Minh Thuong
and Phu Quoc National Parks. The challenge for the Reserve is to balance sustainable
economic development with conservation of the environment and particularly its unique
biodiversity.

Based on the successful tri-partite cooperation between Australia, Germany and
Viet Nam in Kien Giang and on the largeneed for further support in the Mekong Delta
on issues of climate change, further funding support is being provided from the German
Government and AusAID for a new program, the Climate Change in Coastal Ecosystems
Program (CCCEP). This program will operate in five provinces and at national level.
Components and subject areas form a program that is relevant throughout the Mekong
Delta and combine to assist in the development and implementation of a functional
strategic policy and legal framework and a new model of cooperative management
between the five Lower Mekong Provinces supported by GIZ and AusAID.

Saline intrusion, conversion of the extensive areas of acid sulphate soils from potential to
actual and extreme weather events resulting in overtopping of dykes are hazards already
causing environmental damage that will be further exacerbated by predicted climate
change. [Extract from Executive Summary]
