In Vietnam, some cities and provinces are thinking of developing green infrastructure, including Can Tho. Green infrastructure is a network of infrastructure items designed to provide ecosystem services. The network can improve environmental conditions, helping improve people’s health and quality of life. It also supports a green economy and enhances biodiversity.
Tran Van Giai Phong from ISET Vietnam said green infrastructure has important significance to the sustainable development of urban areas in the context of climate change and pollution.
Phong and other parties from April to September carried out research and analysed the problems Can Tho is facing, which include floods caused by flood tides, urban development and rainfall. The city is also bearing pressure from air and water pollution.
