Vũ Thị Thu Lan, Hoàng Thanh Sơn


Located in the centre of the Middle of Vietnam, Quang Nam province is annually affected by a variety of natural disasters, including flow-related disasters such as floods and droughts, which have the most occurrence frequency, largest influence sphere and highest severity. They are also natural disasters that cause the major damage to the economy, environment and society. The forecast of aforementioned natural disasters in the context of climate change is the fundamental of proposing solutions to minimize economic, social and environmental losses, furthermore, to manage the risks of natural disasters.
