The NERC-funded National Capability project: Addressing Challenges of Coastal Communities through Ocean Research for Developing Economies (ACCORD) is a consortium project that aimed to deliver high-quality science outcomes required to improve the environmental information available to support: 1) Sustainable growth of, and resilience to change for, the blue economies of partner countries, and 2) Resilience to natural hazards including impact-based, climate-proof coastal flood warning systems, in coastal states on the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list of Official Development Assistance (ODA) recipients. As part of ACCORD, PML has been working with two communities, one in Vietnam and one in Cambodia (Figure 1). Over the period 2018 to 2021, research and capacity building was carried out in these two locations. One aspect of these programmes was to utilise Earth Observations as a tool for providing background data.The aim of this report is to describe the Earth observation (EO) data collected for these two communities during the ACCORD project, and use the data to describe the basic environmental and ecosystem dynamics around Da Nang, Vietnam in particular, but also around the Kep Province, Cambodia. We also assess the potential for mapping locations of aquaculture sites around Da Nang Bay through exploitation of EO data. Here, we first describe the locations and background for studying these two sites before moving on to the methodology, results, and discussion.
This project was funded by UK Research and Innovation, as part of the Natural Environment Research Council’s Official Development Assistance – National Capability project Addressing Challenges of Coastal Communities through Ocean Research for Developing Economies (ACCORD) through grant NE/R000123/1.
