Sustainable Urban Cooling in Viet Nam cities

  • Chen, Zhuolun (PI)

Project Details


The project will support 3 pilot cities of Hanoi, Can Tho and Tam Ky, selected to represent the range of municipal administrations in Viet Nam, to adopt Urban Cooling Action Plans (UCAPs), finance pilot projects and unlock municipal budgets for extreme heat and cooling. Interventions will include improved urban design, naturebased solutions, passive cooling measures, municipal incentives, district cooling and public procurement. Five learning cities will follow this work to ensure long-term scale-up.

Key findings

Support Viet Nam at the national and local level to tackle its rapidly increasing cooling demand, protect populations from extreme heat, and implement its NDC mitigation reduction targets through a comprehensive and integrated approach to urban cooling in line with the Paris Agreement, Kigali Amendment and the SDGs.
