  There is increasing awareness of the devastation of climate change incidence due to recent environmental disasters noted in Vietnam and other neighboring Asian countries. Vietnam is one of the Asian countries most affected by climate change. The country s 10 most vulnerable provinces are among the top 25% most susceptible regions in South East Asia. The program, thus, seeks to provide graduate students with knowledge and unique educational experience of the effects of climate change on aquaculture and fisheries.
