For the period 2008-2015, balancing socio-economic development and environmental protection is essential to fostering the sustainable development of the city of Da Nang. As one of Viet Nam’s Model cities, Da Nang is developing a pilot programme for environmentally sustainable residential areas that could serve as a reference for other Vietnamese cities. Under the ASEAN ESC Model Cities Programme Da Nang has been working to establish model environmentally sustainable residential areas.
