Viet Nam has achieved many of its Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets, although progress has been slow in some areas, including the political representation of women. There is still a need to improve equity and quality of education, particularly for children from minority ethnic communities in remote areas.
This short document (10 pages) provides examples of activities involving men, women, boys, and girls to increase preparedness for flooding and other natural disasters. Although set in Vietnam, the example and activities implemented could take place in other contexts as well. One key focus of the project is to increase gender equality, empowering women as well as men.
