Furthermore, the combined effect of population growth and accelerating migration from rural to urban areas, means that Vietnam’s cities are expanding rapidly. Uncontrolled or poorly planned expansion will increase the population at risk to the extreme weather events likely to be exacerbated by climate change. These issues are particularly relevant to provinces in the central coastal region therefore strengthened capacity and greater resilience is a high priority....See more
