Vietnam is urbanizing at a rapid pace. Cities, particularly those in low-lying delta areas are especially vulnerable to extreme weather events and impact of climate change. The rapid pace of urbanization is expected to intensify the economic costs related to extreme events. Urbanization in Vietnam has also been accompanied by rising air and water pollution, inadequate solid waste management and wastewater treatment, urban sprawl, and loss of green space threatening urban livability. Cities are also major users of energy and major contributors of GHG emissions. The proposed activity is being carried out in collaboration with the Government of Vietnam to enhance climate smart urbanization in the country.
