The main goal of this project; which was capacity building in the field of climate change at the two partnering institutions; is achieved.
This is especially the case at IMHEN, for those staffmembers who participated directly or indirectly in the implementation of the project. The expected scientific outcomes have been achieved, and the outcomes will contribute to plans for adaptation and mitigation of climate change in Vietnam.
Funds have been managed satisfactorily. Funds could probably have been used more cost-efficiently, but that might have had a negative effect on the quality of the scientific outcomes.
Collaboration between the two partners has met expectations on Vietnamese side, but not fully on Norwegian side. The reason seems to have been unclarified ambitions. Collaboration between Vietnam and Norway in this field in the future should build on experiences from this project.
The Norwegian embassy in Hanoi has communicated that there will be no further available funding from their side to continue this project.
