The “Da Nang Hydrology and Urban Development Simulation Model” was funded under the Rockefeller Foundations, Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) program. The project ran for over two years through to June 30, 2013, and was implemented by the Da Nang Department of Construction (DOC) and the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition-International. Using the results of the model and the approach suggested by ISET-International experts, DOC worked with the Da Nang Urban Planning Institute to adjust Da Nang’s Development Plan. This included widening the floodways and maintaining/improving most of the existing low-lying rural areas; and adjusting land use planning in riverine areas to adapt to and minimize risks from future urban flooding. On December 04, 2013, the Prime Minister approved the modifications to Da Nang’s Development Plan under decision no. 2357/QĐ-TTg.
