Project activities are aimed at families with the most urgent need, thereby promoting existing response efforts by local authorities and responding to government calls for relief. Affected households will receive an integrated assistance package including household tools, cleaning tools, cash for living and restoring livelihoods, and support to ensure safety in during project implementation.

It is known that the response plan is based on the results of the “Damage and Needs Assessment” jointly carried out by the Government of Vietnam, central and local agencies and humanitarian organizations. The assessments indicate the need for financial assistance of affected households, among other things, to help meet immediate needs and accelerate the recovery of life after floods and storms.
