dc.description.abstractThis study was done to assist Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) People’s Committee in adapting to and coping with climate change and variability. HCMC is at serious risk of flooding, both from regular and from extreme climatic events such as tropical storms and typhoons. In response to the flooding challenges, major drainage and dike works are being planned in three stages to enclose HCMC and divert floods, rainwater, and high tides to the Thi Vai River.
