The Mekong Delta region in the south of Vietnam is home to one fifth of the national population and has population densities that are amongst the highest in the country. Therefore, effective climate change adaptation measures are required to enhance the physical and economic climate resilience of the region, and in particular to protect poor and rural households. It also has a general applicability approach to different sectors in the whole country. This research developed of a user-friendly visualization methodology in GIS based to display climate change vulnerability that is widely applicable to different sectors in the whole country area. A systematic analysis of vulnerability in the agricultural sector in CaMau was made as a case study. GIS was used to display the spatial distribution of the vulnerability of the agricultural sector. The study also focused on the development of potential adaptation measures of climate change in CaMau, technical and institutional recommendations for successful implementation of climate change adaptation measures.
