Climate change poses a significant threat in rapidly growing cities in Vietnam. With strong rural-urban migration and low incomes, many households are vulnerable to seasonal typhoons. This project contributes to increasing penetration of storm-resilient housing among low-income households in Central Vietnam.

The project 'Exploiting Synergies between Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) and Urban Farming in Vinh Yen City, Vietnam' pilots the synergies between handling rainwater through SUDS and using SUDS for small-scale urban farming.
The project has improved resilience of the Vietnamese society to the adverse effects of increasing flood and inundation disasters in urban areas.
The objective of the project is to increase climate resilience of poor communities in the Mekong Delta by providing improved low-income housing solutions for climate resilient green urban land-use planning and infrastructure.
The objective of the project was to start systematically integrating climate change considerations into urban planning in Vietnam through the use of strategic environmental assessment.
The project aims at improving Vietnam’s readiness to benefit from international climate financing by supporting scaling up mitigation actions in the cement sector.
