HCM City authorities are being urged to develop a master plan for flood control as new flood-prone areas have emerged and flooding has re-occurred in others.
Hoàng Minh Trí, deputy head of the Institute for Development Studies, said the city has allocated funds to develop water drainage systems and waste water treatment. Though some of the solutions stopped flooding, some areas in the city face flooding again, he said.
He said the city must reassess previous solutions, discover shortcomings, and come up with a master plan for flood control.
