ISET will provide technical assistant to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to strengthen access to tools and guidance on disaster risk-sensitive land use planning and urban development processes in Asia and the Pacific, including Da Nang city.

Core Program Activities

ISET urban planning and disaster risk management specialists contributed to a guidebook on how to integrate disaster risk management considerations into urban development planning in Asian cities. Specials provided guidance on risk-sensitive land use planning, risk sensitive urban redevelopment, and risk-sensitive water, wastewater and storm water drainage system development. The input of ISET experts was based on experiences in Da Nang, Vietnam. ISET specialists also produced a case study on incentives for investing in disaster risk management, based on experiences in Da Nang.
