2020 is the year of historical floods in Vietnam. Its central region was repeatedly hit by torrential rains, flash floods and landslides triggered by heavy storms. Nearly 250 people were killed or missing, and thousands of homes submerged. Vietnam is among countries most vulnerable to extreme weather phenomena, which is often considered a symptom of climate change.
In October and November 2020, I was commissioned by the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) to document the aftermath of heavy storms and typhoons in four Vietnamese central provinces Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Quang Tri and Thua Thien-Hue.
