    Abstract The overall objectives of this study are, firstly, to identify and analyse the different factors that characterise vulnerability and that explain the losses people experience resulting from slow-onset floods and, secondly, to develop criteria and indicators to assess this vulnerability. The thesis aims to enhance an understanding of the dynamics of vulnerability and response capacities of people facing floods in rural areas in the upper Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD). The research was conducted within the interdisciplinary WISDOM Project (Water-related Information System for the Sustainable Development of the Mekong Delta) and embedded in Work Package 5000 on Water Knowledge and Vulnerability. Emphasis is thus given to how varying socio-economic groups access and use their livelihood resources to build livelihood strategies in the context of floods. It explores the influences shaped by the transforming processes and structures in their flood response.
