Blurb/Shorttext:
“We have suffered a lot and we had no food as our houses were under water. Our cows and buffaloes were dead and our vehicles and motorbikes got swept away. Our kids could not go to school because the roads were closed. We had no income. The whole village quickly turned into chaos”. [from an interview] This book is about people who had to cope with the challenges of changes in climate and livelihoods almost every year due to the recurring floods and typhoons. The author took a field trip to Thua Thien Hue province, the North Central Region of Vietnam to interview local people who had experienced the impacts of floods and typhoons for years. Since Typhoon Nari and Haiyan in 2013, stories of several cities have been frequently covered by the media. Thua Thien Hue province, one of the most frequently affected and susceptible regions in Vietnam, however, was seldom mentioned. Despite many efforts made to mitigate the impacts of natural hazards, people in the region still suffer from recurring damages.
