Thua Thien-Hue (VNA) – Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue Nguyen Van Phuong received a working group from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on October 3, during which he pledged that the province will create optimal conditions for a ADB-funded resilient and sustainable urban development project.

The project aims to help the Ministry of Construction complete a strategy for national urban development, while supporting the realisation of national targets on urban system development through action plans on urban development.

It also gives guidelines for improving national urban planning in tandem with climate change response, while applying pilot models and action plans for climate change adaption for some localities.

In Thua Thien-Hue, the group asked for the province’s support in site surveying and data collection for the project.

Phuong lauded the objectives of the project and promised to provide all necessary information to the group.

He also expressed his hope that the group will help the province tackle problems in traffic, climate change warning, as well as preserving and promoting heritage.

The four-year project was approved at a cost of 2.755 million USD.-VNA
