Disaster mitigation and prevention

Viet Nam is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the region. The country regularly experiences typhoons and related floods, as well as numerous tropical storms during the monsoon season. These storms, plus occasional earthquakes, cause frequent landslides. Despite the heavy rains during the monsoon season, many parts of the country also endure severe drought for much of the year, which contributes to the destruction of forests and cropland through fire.
