Nature-Based Solutions for Cities in Viet Nam: Water Sensitive Urban Design

Water sensitive urban design (WSUD) is a relatively new urban development approach in developing Asian cities. Its application involves the integration of water cycle management with the built environment through urban planning and design. Specifically, it integrates water flows in urban landscaping and considers all aspects of the urban water cycle—including storage, reuse, treatment, retention, and infiltration of runoff water as a valuable urban resource.
