In recent years large cities in developing countries have experienced a 160.4 percent increase in economic damages due to natural disasters. The developing world's exponential urban growth coupled with the dangers posed by increasing frequencies of natural disasters due to climate change are prompting a new focus on urban resilience planning. This workbook covers new urban resilience strategies and procedures gained from the natural disaster experiences of three Vietnamese cities: Ha Noi, Can Tho, and Dong Hoi. The entire planning process is covered in-depth including templates and examples. This workbook, intended for those studying urban resilience planning, is a supplement to the World Bank publication Climate Resilient Cities: A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Disaster.
