Neil Adger, W. (1999). Social vulnerability to climate change and extremes in coastal Vietnam. World Development, 27(2), 249-269. Southeast Asia: Vietnam Typhoons heavily disrupt harvests and affect the germination of rice seedlings. Major economic activities of coastal communities such as salt-making are also disrupted due to the landfall of typhoons and storms. Secure tenure and access over important coastal resources to increase community resilience.
