The project directly addresses One Plan 2006-2010  Outcome 5.2 "Institutional systems and processes strengthened  to enhance coordinated and integrated ORR actions and adaptation to global climate change at national and Provincial level” The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the institutional systems and processes for disaster risk reduction and preparedness in order to reduce vulnerability to climate extremes and strengthen resilience to climate change impacts.

Natural disasters threaten Viet Nam's continued economic development. The project supports the request made by the issues concerning Viet Nam's Government of Viet Nam to provide technical assistance for implementation of National Strategy on Disaster Control and Mitigation in the Framework of Natural Disaster Mitigation Partnership (NDMP) and other elements under the Action Plan Framework for Adaptation and Mitigation of Climate Change. In addition, the Natural Disaster Coordination Group under One UN Plan identified strengthening of preparedness, early warning, data base management, coordination, communication, training and enhancing resilience for future risks (climate change) as priorities.

Well coordinated DRR actions and climate change adaptation need to start addressing existing vulnerabilities and risks provides a basis to understand the areas of concern to make better informed decisions in disaster preparedness and response and long term measures relevant to climate change adaptation. The ongoing efforts by UNICEF on Vietinfo database need to be strengthened incorporating indicators relevant to agriculture sector together with other available indicators for the northern mountain region.
