The Vietnam City Resilience Index


By Michael DiGregorio, Nguyen Tri Thanh, and Le Quang Trung

Proof of Concept Report

This ground-breaking report is the first effort globally to undertake comparative assessment of city resilience across a large cohort of cities within a single country. It provides a comprehensive view of strengths and weaknesses across 12 core areas and a number of subindicators, and can be used by government agencies, international development partners and others to foster greater awareness and action on resilience building in Vietnam. We also believe that lessons from developing the Vietnam City Resilience Index will be valuable as a guide to other governments and agencies committed to enhancing urban resilience.
