The program, called Climate-Resilient Urban Infrastructure in north-central Vietnam (CRUIV), comes in the context of the recent devastation caused by natural disasters in central Vietnam, illustrating the importance of building long-term resilience for localities in the region.


The project aims in particular at enhancing people’s safety and reducing losses caused by floods through an improvement in flood risk prevention infrastructure such as reinforcing drainage networks and protection dikes, upgrading service roads, especially those allowing effective evacuations and rescue operations in case of floods, and improving wastewater collection and treatment to improve the local environment.
