The Transitional Legislation Landscape and What it Means for Resilience in Vietnam

Vietnam’s new Law on Planning, which was issued on November 24, 2017 and became effective on January 01, 2019, is an effort to overhaul the bulky and inefficient planning system in Vietnam. The principles upheld by this new law, including integrated planning, stakeholder engagement, and regional planning are all highly consistent with resilience thinking.
