Coastal conservation in Vietnam

Vietnam's coastal mangrove forests are suffering from climate change. What's more, intensive rice production and enormous shrimp farms are also damaging coast lines. Better management of mangrove forests could help. In the southern Mekong Delta, experts from German development agency GTZ are creating protected coastal zones. They are replanting mangrove forests, together with the local population. And they are teaching the locals about how to fight climate change as well.
