For weeks in May, June, and July, Canadian team members traveled to Vietnam to coordinate the construction of retrofits for four homes in locations particularly vulnerable to flooding. Vietnamese team members are monitoring the performance of these homes during the flood season. They will conduct post-flood interviews with the owners of the four test homes to gauge their satisfaction with the amphibious retrofits.

We hope to scale up the project across the Mekong Delta through training workshops and the implementation of several more amphibious retrofits.

Stay tuned for the next stages of this project!
