Hoi An, Viet Nam: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

Hoi An, Viet Nam: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

Overview

In Vietnamese cities, as in other cities globally, urban centers are often located in highly risk-prone areas, such as in the coastal zone, along rivers or among mountains. Major types of infrastructure, such as roads, hospitals and water supply networks, as well as basic services such as healthcare, are vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. In coastal areas, storm surges and sea-level rise can affect food supply and settlements. In Viet Nam, it is projected that sea levels will rise by 57 to 73 millimetres by 2100.
