The booklet bargains an outline on land use making plans in regards to the elements of city flooding, city weather, city strength and concrete mobility in addition to spatial perspectives from the attitude of city making plans reminiscent of the metropolitan point, the town, the neighbourhood and construction point.

The authors are participants of a German executive funded study venture on tips to aid HCMC’s municipal executive to evolve to dangers on the topic of weather change.

The increasing income levels will not just lead to a higher demand in quantity and quality of housing. It also inevitably will lead to higher car-ownership rates (Waibel 2009).

Often the existing sewer systems in the fast emerging megacities of Southeast Asia, like HCMC, do not have the capacity to cope with large surface runoff volumes following strong tropical rainfall events. To assess and illustrate the inter-linkages between dynamic urban development processes and the feedback on the urban climate itself, our information management strategy is strongly focused on parameters describing the urban structure and their functional properties. Our research results document that the spatiotemporal processes of urban development, alongside climate change, are the central driving forces for climate-related impacts within HCMC urban system.
