The contribution to the economy by agriculture, forestry and fishery, the sectors most volatile to extreme weather conditions, has dropped to about 20 %, even though more than 50 % of the workforce in Quang Nam Province earn their incomes from these primary production sectors.

In extreme weather situations with excessive rain, proper management of the reservoirs is essential to avoid the water from the reservoirs contributing to the potential flooding downstream when the gates are opened. Similarly, during periods of drought, it is essential that the hydropower projects do not store the water for power generation instead of releasing it for irrigation. Deforestation resulting from the building of the water reservoirs and/or the resettlement of evicted residents, together with reservoir management during excessive rain and drought, are examples of man-made environmental changes that aggravate the environmental and socio-economic impacts of extreme weather situations.
