Beach, sand dunes and lagoon

A standard sight in central Vietnam are long straight stretches of beach with large lagoons behind them protected by sand dunes. The lagoons behind are a mix of fresh and salt water and are important habitats for local communities in fish and shrimp farming, as well as environmental conservation if managed properly. While the two great deltas are the source of most climate change discussion and funding, these areas in central Vietnam are also at high risk to rising sea levels, drought and natural disasters. As with most of Vietnam, I am looking forward to watching what happens in these areas in the future
