In recent years cyclical floods affecting the Mekong delta have become more serious and complex, resulting in significant loss of life and affecting food and income security. This five year project (2005-2010) focuses on 24 communes in 5 districts within the two most flood prone provinces in the delta; Tien Giang and Dong Thap. It aims to reduce the risk of floods to rural men, women and children in Tien Giang and Dong Thap by decreasing their vulnerability and increasing the capacity of communities and institutions. This mid-term evaluation assesses the effectiveness of project activities in contributing to the key objective and identifies the strengths and weaknesses of project activities to date, with recommendations to enhance effectiveness and impact for the duration of the project.
