Abstract :The coastline of Vietnam is more than 3,260 km and stretches across from north to south. Here occur a series of interactive processes between the land and the sea, between the dynamic force of rivers and the sea, between the natural and human processes, etc. Recently, sea level rise due to climate change is serious global threat. Some researches being undertaken in Vietnam indicates that significant impacts due to sea level rise may already be occurring. These impacts have resulted increasing unpredictability and severity of coastal problems such as landloss, increasing flooding of low lying coastal areas, accelerated erosion along the coasts, watersalt intrusion, degradation coastal ecosystem and impact directly people living coastal region.
