Vietnam is experiencing the fourth fastest construction growth rate in East Asia, with the government planning to build a million affordable homes by 2020. Yet Vietnam is also one of the top five countries most vulnerable to climate change, because of its long and low-lying coastline. At this critical juncture, how can Vietnam continue to expand its built environment without adding to the negative impacts of climate change?
