Viet Nam: Urban Environment and Climate Change Adaptation Project

Sovereign Project | 43237-013 Status: Approved

Summary

The proposed project will construct and upgrade the infrastructure facilities to improve urban environmental conditions in three coastal cities of Dong Hoi (Quang Binh province), Hoi An (Quang Nam province), and Sam Son (Thanh Hoa province).

Description The proposed project will construct and upgrade the infrastructure facilities to improve urban environmental conditions in three coastal cities of Dong Hoi (Quang Binh province), Hoi An (Quang Nam province), and Sam Son (Thanh Hoa province). The improved urban environment is expected to strengthen the municipal financial bases in the project cities through an increase of tax revenues from the appreciation of land values and the tourism industry.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed project is in line with the Viet Nam's Socio-Economic Development Plan (SEDP), 2011 2015, which aims to create a foundation for the country to be an industrialized country by 2020. The SEDP accords high priority to construction of urban infrastructure, taking into account environmental protection, in which special importance is attached to traffic networks, water supply systems and sewerages, waste and water treatment facilities, facilities for collection, transport, treatment and burial of waste, especially hazardous waste in urban areas and industrial zones. The water supply and other municipal infrastructure services is one of the key priority areas identified in the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) country and partnership strategy (CPS), 2012 2015. The CPS emphasizes the need for environmental improvement of secondary cities through a decentralized approach. The project is consistent with the priorities set forth in the assessment, strategy, and roadmap (ASR) for urban development sector and water and sanitation sector. The project falls under one of the three priority support areas of the urban development sector ASR, i.e., development of secondary cities as regional economic hub to foster balanced regional development and strengthen rural-urban linkage. The water and sanitation ASR accords high priority to the urban sanitation programs as part of comprehensive socio-economic development in secondary cities which are likely to be affected by climate change. The proposed project also falls under the priority areas identified under the ADB's draft Urban Operational Plan under Strategy 2020 and Water Operational Plan 2011 2020. The former supports developing green and competitive cities that are resilient to climate change and provide incentives for employment generating investments, and the latter emphasizes the need to expand wastewater management in the developing member countries and support the public-private partnership.
