Abstract: This report, which forms part of the PIRCCA (The Policy Information and Response Platform on Climate Change and Rice in ASEAN and its Member Countries Project) project outputs, focuses on the results of the survey conducted in the first half of 2015 on climate change perception and adaptation strategies of male and female farmers in three selected provinces in Vietnam: An Giang, Bac Lieu, and Tra Vinh. The survey seeks to gather information on current climate change perceptions and adaptation strategies and gaps between the identified male and female respondents. The findings of the survey, along with the outcomes of other PIRCCA activities, are instrumental in PIRCCA’s efforts in influencing the crafting of gender-responsive food security policies for Vietnam. The focus of this study was to first gather information on climate change perceptions and adaptation strategies in Vietnam. Second, this survey was implemented to look for information gaps, perception gaps, or differences in adaptation strategies between men and women. The survey design was such that the husband and the wife of a household were interviewed separately on topics such as climate variability, climate stress and resulting changes, climate stress and impacts, and adaptation and coping strategies.
