image of OECD Urban Policy Reviews: Viet Nam

This report provides a comprehensive assessment of Viet Nam’s urban policies and analyses how national spatial planning for urban areas, along with specific sectoral policies, directly and indirectly affect Viet Nam’s urban development. It points to a number of policy areas which Viet Nam can tap into, in order to fully capitalise on the unique opportunities that its urbanisation process may bring about, including urban transport, housing, land, the quality of urban environment, and urban green growth. The review also assesses the efficiency and effectiveness of current urban governance arrangements, and makes recommendations for Viet Nam to develop an attractive and well-managed system of large and medium-sized cities, thereby contributing to achieving its sustainable development objectives.



Making Vietnamese cities sustainable and productive through green growth policies

This chapter gives a special focus on Viet Nam’s endeavour to foster green growth in urban areas. It begins by a short introduction highlighting Viet Nam’s urgent needs for strengthening urban green growth policies. It then analyses national policy frameworks in the areas of green growth and climate change along with a selection of related sectoral policies in Viet Nam. The chapter also assesses governance structures for urban green growth policies, demonstrating how urban green growth could be implemented more effectively, through a cooperative and coordinated approach as well as improved monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems.
