Coconut planting in Ben Tre is a culture that responds to the natural environment and responds to climate change from a cultural ecological perspective.


Coconut farming in Ben Tre plays a very important role, creating unique features of the province's culture and economy. In the land of Coconut - Ben Tre in particular as well as in the sweet "phu sa" sub-region in general, for the first time the work of coconut cultivation has become a profession, that is the profession of coconut farming. It is this profession that has created so many livelihoods for the people at the same time, it also helps us to recognize the nuances of "hard-working civilization" that have a very specific characteristic for the resident community in this land. In the context of climate change today, people must "save themselves" by offering initiatives (folk experience) to adapt, mitigate risks that may occur to themselves, family and community before outside intervention. The following article of the research team will contribute to clarify the cultural values that deal with the natural environment and adapt to climate change from the ecological ecological culture inherited from coconut plantation back to local.
