The purpose of this research is to undertake a forward-looking analysis to explore the costs and benefits of systematic efforts to build resilience in Da Nang city. Rather than focusing primarily on the returns to individual interventions, the approach will be to contrast a base “business as usual” scenario with one that builds resilience and reduces future exposure and losses through strategic design changes in transportation, flood management, and housing systems. This will represent a critical addition to debates over the justification for resilience investment.
