Paper Abstract

Cost–benefit analysis for sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) project in Mekong Delta: A case study of pilot project in Long Xuyen city

Vietnam is one of the countries most severely affected by climate change, and the Mekong Delta is a particularly vulnerable area, suffering heavy economic consequences. Although seasonal flooding is a natural phenomenon in the Mekong Delta, over the past decades, flooding has been occurring with increasing frequency and intensity due to causes related to climate change and development. infrastructure development. To overcome these challenges, the German International Cooperation (GIZ) cooperated with Ministry of Construction and Mekong Delta localities to launch a pilot projects of a sustainable urban drainage system (SuDS) in Long Xuyen. and Rach Gia and Ca Mau in the period 2017-2020. In this study, the cost–benefit analysis (CBA) method is applied to evaluate the effectiveness and contribute to determining the model’s scalability for project in Long Xuyen city, An Giang province. With the CBA method, the results show that the benefits of the model outweigh the costs. Moreover, the results show more clearly intangible benefits such as public health, educational opportunities to raise awareness about sustainable solutions in urban flooding control.
