The Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA) has pledged 400,000 USD to the central Da Nang city to deal with urban waste water.

For its part, Da Nang authorities will contribute 80,000 USD to the project.

The organisation will conduct pre-feasibility study and seek investors for the implementation of the project.

Da Nang city is facing difficulties in the treatment of waste water in its industrial parks of Hoa Khanh, Lien Chieu and Tho Quang as well as the discharge of daily waste water into the sea.

CDIA was set up by the Asia Development Bank and the German government in 2007 to support small-sized Asian cities in the implementation of sustainable environment and urban management and infrastructure development projects./.
