Resumé

Abstract This chapter will introduce the geographical conditions and economic
characteristics of Central Vietnam. It proceeds to analyse the general economic
development in the region, particularly since the introduction of economic reforms
in the early 1990s. Both foreign investment and exports have risen dramatically,
turning Vietnam into a major exporter of a range of agricultural and industrial
products. Further, it shows how some of the paradoxes of development and globalization,
such as high growth and simultaneous socio-economic differentiation,
are also played out in the provinces of Central Vietnam. In a disaster prone
region, the poor households are at risk of losing out when greater weather variability
threatens agricultural and forestry production and increases overall economic
losses. The rapid expansion of the hydropower generating capacity has stimulated
economic development and thereby potentially enhanced social resilience, but at
the same time has increased the ecological vulnerability and set in motion a range
of processes not under control.
