Deltaic urbanism for living with flooding in Southern Vietnam

Nguyen, Phuong Nga (2015) Deltaic urbanism for living with flooding in Southern Vietnam. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


Waterfront communities in the Mekong Delta live with the inundation of their homes and businesses from seasonal flooding every year. This project investigated housing types, social practices and feelings of vulnerability of local people in the Cai Rang waterfront community in Can Tho City. The project made a significant contribution to methods for assessing vulnerability, adaptability and resilience of inhabitants of flood-prone housing in Vietnam. It also developed a new concept of 'Deltaic Urbanism' that offers a better urbanist approach specifically for deltaic regions subject to the potential impacts of climate change.
