Assessing the Adaptive Capacity of Coastal Urban Households to Climate Change (Case Study in Liên Chiểu District, Đà Nẵng City, Vietnam)

The present paper aimed to develop the theoretical framework for assessing the adaptive capacity of coastal urban households to climate change. The adaptive capacity framework consisted of six dimensions and 23 indicators, which were applied to households in Liên Chiểu district, Đà Nẵng city. The result revealed that the communities in Hòa Khánh Nam and Hòa Hiệp Nam ward were the highest and lowest adaptation to climate change, respectively. The adaptive capacity of households was relatively correlated with the inherent capacity of economic, human and social capitals and external capacity of municipal services, environmental quality, and the level of urban stability and security. For better adaptation to climate change, the urban planning and policies should enhance the household economy, human and social capitals. The adaptive capacity indicators were relatively simple, but promised framework to assess the complexity and adaptation processes of a socio-natural system in coastal areas. The theoretical framework could be used to study the adaptive capacity of households in other coastal areas with appropriate modification.

Abstract: The present paper aimed to develop the theoretical framework for assessing the adaptive capacity of coastal urban households to climate change. The adaptive capacity framework consisted of six dimensions and 23 indicators, which were applied to households in Liên Chiểu district, Đà Nẵng city. The result revealed that the communities in Hòa Khánh Nam and Hòa Hiệp Nam ward were the highest and lowest adaptation to climate change, respectively. The adaptive capacity of households was relatively correlated with the inherent capacity of economic, human and social capitals and external capacity of municipal services, environmental quality, and the level of urban stability and security. For better adaptation to climate change, the urban planning and policies should enhance the household economy, human and social capitals. The adaptive capacity indicators were relatively simple, but promised framework to assess the complexity and adaptation processes of a socio-natural system in coastal areas. The theoretical framework could be used to study the adaptive capacity of households in other coastal areas with appropriate modification.
