The documentary film named “The impacts of climate change on Hoi An World cultural heritage” produced by the Television Center for Weather and Natural Disasters Warning (CWNDW) of Vietnam Television (VTV) - one of three films of Asian countries - was chosen to introduce in the COP- 21.

“On the film, we focused on the real images of the heavy storms and floods and terrible devastation in the last 50 years in Hoi An city, especially in last 10 years – a decade of the heaviest natural disasters in Vietnam in general and Hoi An city in particular. . . Through the film, we would like to help viewers to learn more about the impacts of the climate change on Hoi An World cultural heritage. The ways of adapting to climate change, bad weather and the efforts of Vietnam and Hoi An’s residents in taking part in “the war against climate change” are main information introduced in this documentary film,” shared Mrs Pham Thi Thanh Thu, Director of the CWNDW.
