This study investigates the impact of climate change (CC) on water resources in Phu Yen province, Vietnam by assessing historical trends of temperature, rainfall and flood simulation scenarios from a report of Vietnam of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment in 2020. The method for assessing the impacts on water resources was provided in the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2007. Several areas in Phu Yen province could be high risk of flooding in the middle of the century, such as Son Hoa, Song Cau, Tuy An, Dong Hoa and Tuy Hoa districts, where were chosen as study areas. The analytical results indicate that the impacts of climate change significantly influence to inundation on water resources in these localities. These results could help to partially predict impacts of climate change in the future and provide useful information to plan adaptation strategies in water utilization in Phu Yen province for the policy making on sustainable management with future climatic condition.
