On October 26, 2017 in the central city of Ha Tinh, the Technical Support Unit (TSU) in combination of the Project Coordination Units (PCU) of the provinces of Ha Tinh, Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan, jointly organized a workshop on “Urban planning in response to climate change based on integrated water resource management.”

Approximately 60 participants attended the workshop including delegations from Ministry of Construction’s Department of Urban Development, PCUs of the provinces, provincial departments of Construction, Planning and Investment, and Natural Resources and Environment, as well as the people’s committees of the cities, towns and districts of provinces of Ha Tinh, Ninh Thuan, and Binh Thuan. In addition, the workshop was attended by representatives from the Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology Science and Climate Change (IMHEN) under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, and from the Vietnam Academy of Water Resources (VAWR) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. 

With the general objective to strengthen resilience and capacity for responding to climate change in urban areas, the workshop aimed demonstrate how the completed studies on climate change scenarios and hydrologic and hydraulic modelling could be applied to enhance urban planning. By demonstrating a “strategic structural planning” approach incorporating GIS, it was shown that by overlaying constraints due to environmental factors, such as flooding, with other urban development priorities it was possible to reduce risk and maximize opportunity in the urban areas.


Also at the workshop, experts from IMHEN and VAWR gave presentations on the  studies on climate change scenarios and hydrologic and hydraulic modelling respectively. The study results were presented as flood maps which showed the extent and depth of flooding under both existing conditions and for future climate scenarios. The flood maps highlight areas of high risk which assists for identifying suitable land for urban development. 

Presentations were also given on “strategic structure planning” to demonstrate the strengths of this approach as well as experiences on allowing for climate change in urban development. Experts also introduced and provided guidance the application of GIS technology in urban management and planning. 

The participants at the workshop highly commended the project results, and expected that the application of the new approach methods in urban planning, and the effective usage of the results, will contribute to improving the quality of urban planning in the long term in the context of climate change. 

The participants also emphasized the need to renew and institutionalize regulations on the usage of research results for urban planning, in close connection with more investment in construction works, especially water drainage works in urban areas.

I totally agree, indeed The Climate Change Program implements Result-Based Management Approach. Last year the same happened and all the management system were changed all were in a high tension.
