Da Nang (VNA) – A project, which aims to realise initiatives of building climate resilient houses for low-income people living in urban areas, was officially launched central Da Nang city on May 12.

Financed by the Nordic Development Fund, the 1-million-USD project seeks to increase the number of houses that can resist and adapt to storms and floods.

It includes five main processes, focusing on studying constructed houses, designing funding packages, piloting construction of houses on the basis of funding packages, making documents related to impacts of funding mechanisms, and promoting expansion of the project.

Previously, the “ Storm Resistant Housing for a Resilient Da Nang City ” project funded by the US’s Rockefeller Foundation, which began in the central city from 2011, has benefited 414 local families, helping them in constructing and upgrading their houses.-VNA
