Urban Environment Climate Change Adaptation in Viet Nam

ADB’s Viet Nam Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) has elaborated three priority support areas for the urban development sector. One of these is the development of secondary cities as regional economic hub to foster balanced regional development and strengthen rural-urban linkage. The EO project will provide direct support to the planning of investments in urban infrastructure in the cities of Dong Hoi and Hoi An, in particular for the water management sector. The delivered datasets will include urban baseline assessment and change maps (land cover maps for 2001, 2006 and 2014 and the associated change maps, soil cover maps, a coastal flood risk assessment and a risk assessment of saline intrusions to ground water), high-resolution satellite-based coastal bathymetry maps as well as coastal habitat change maps (indicators of expansion or conversion to agriculture or urban land use, loss in vegetation cover, changes in river boundaries and coastal erosion/deposition).
