Previously, the majority of beekeepers in Da Loc commune (Hau Loc) lacked experience and techniques in beekeeping
 for honey. In addition, beekeepers have no link, share, and support to develop bee colonies, bees fly by themselves 
(lose groups), low honey output ... Based on the needs of the community. Da Loc commune, making use of the 
abundant local source of mangrove flowers and trees, Project Management Board “Strengthening resilience to the
 impacts of climate change for vulnerable communities in coastal Vietnam South "funded by the Green Climate Fund 
(GCF project) has supported the model" Beekeeping for honey associated with product consumption ". In February
 2020, GCF project provided 180 colonies to 40 households. Thanks to the training and technical support of the project,
 beekeepers have limited the loss of herds, strong bee colonies and farmers have self-multiplied
Before the project provided support, beekeepers collected 3kg of honey / herd / 4 months on average. After being 
supported by the project, the average yield is 7 kg of honey / herd / 4 months. By the end of June 2020, the total 
output of honey collected from the households participating in the project is 1,400 kg, revenue is 280 million VND, 
profit is estimated at 240 million VND. Compared with other types of agricultural production such as growing rice, 
crops, ... beekeeping is not too hard, production costs are not high, does not take up area, and risks little. 
The success of the honey bee raising model is the premise for the development of beekeeping and the branding of 
mangrove honey in Da Loc commune. At the same time, creating sustainable livelihoods for coastal communities.
In recent years, GCF Project Management Board has implemented 7 livelihood models adapted to climate change in
 the coastal districts of the province with more than 140 beneficiary households. Typically, such as: "Raising duck 
meat" in Da Loc commune, "Raising broiler chickens to ensure biosafety" in Hung Loc commune (Hau Loc); 
"Raising black tiger shrimp intercropped with green crab" in Nga Thuy commune, "Black tiger shrimp farming 
intercropped with tilapia", "Commercial green crab farming", "Beekeeping for honey" in Nga Tan commune (Nga Son)
 ... Most of the models are highly appreciated, suitable for localities, capable of coping well with epidemics and 
unusual changes of weather. Mr. Le Cong Cuong, Director of GCF Management Board of Thanh Hoa province, said:
 It is a program to support people in coastal and coastal areas with difficult circumstances, without knowledge and 
resources to develop production. Especially poor, near-poor households and female-headed families have conditions
 to participate in the project to develop the household economy and escape poverty sustainably. After joining the
 project, households with favorable conditions for career development have implemented, creating jobs and increasing
 stable incomes for their families.Through the process of implementing the project, localities have also had a suitable 
and effective way. In parallel with the successful model building, the integration of these models into the local plan is
 essential for long-term development. At the same time, management prevents adverse impacts or increases the
 effectiveness of the model on the environment and enhances local capacity to adapt to climate change. Increase 
income for farmers, create livelihoods for people in mangrove areas to protect and develop mangrove forests, step 
by step diversify cultured species towards sustainable efficiency.
The support to build sustainable poverty reduction models in coastal communes of the projects, ensures the selection
 of models and animals suitable to local conditions, bringing about sustainable effects. At the same time, the 
replication of the model is derived from the community, in accordance with the conditions and advantages of each
