The former imperial capital of Hue is located near the mouth of the Perfume River and lies in the path of the East Asian Monsoons. Its proneness to flooding is exacerbated by climate change, urbanisation and upstream river management.
Both genders are affected by flooding, but women face
difficulties because they are traditionally responsible for feeding and maintaining the health of the family.
CSRD’s grass roots research examines the different gender impacts of urbanisation and climate change and the extent to which the different genders have been included in assessing climate change vulnerability and contributing to build the resilience of the city. CSRD will seek to identify good practice and draw lessons on gender sensitivity and sustainability as inputs into the Hue Green City and the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) projects.
