Urban Vulnerability in Southeast Asia – A summary of vulnerability assessments conducted under the Mekong-Building Resilience to Climate Change in Asian Cities Program

ISET-International in partnership with the Thailand Environment Institute and the Vietnam National Institute for Science and Technology Policy and Strategy Studies are pleased to share with UCR-CoP members a new report “Urban Vulnerability in Southeast Asia.” This report summarizes and reflects on the findings from vulnerability assessments completed in four cities in Thailand and Vietnam under the Mekong – Building Climate Resilience in Asian Cities (M-BRACE) program.

The report provides an overview of the approach used to conduct vulnerability assessments, city-specific concerns, and common challenges faced by all four cities. While there are specific concerns for each individual city, the similarity of the situations across all four of the cities highlights issues that growing cities throughout the Mekong region are and will be facing.

The findings in this report have already contributed to ongoing efforts to build resilience within M-BRACE. It is our hope that this report will further highlight challenges cities in the Mekong region are facing and will provide insights for cities, governments, funders, and organizations seeking to build resilience within the context of urbanization and climate change.

The report is available to view or download here or on the ISET website, www.i-s-e-t.org.

ISET would like to thank the US Agency for International Development (USAID) for their support of M-BRACE and our partners, the Thailand Environment Institute, the Vietnam National Institute for Science and Technology Policy and Strategy Studies, and city-level technical and academic partners, for their ongoing contributions
