Project ID No. P152851
The Can ThoCity has received financing in the amount of US$ 322.041 million equivalent from the World Bank toward the cost ofthe Can Tho Urban Developmen t and Resilience Project and it intends to apply part of the proceeds to payments for goods, works,related services and consulting services to be procured under this project. This project will be jointly financed by theSECO
The proposed Project Develop ment Objective is to reduce flood risk in the urban core area, improve connectivitybetween the city center and the new low risk urb an growth areas, and enhance the capacity of city authorities to manage disasterrisk in Can Tho City.
Approximately 65 pe rcent of the outcome is to reduce flood risk, while 25 percent is focused onimproving connectivity to lower risk parts of the City and 10 percent aims to increase the capacity to manage disaster risk in theCity. The core urban area is defined as the Ninh Kieu an d Binh Thuy districts. The project will include the followingcomponents:
Component 1: Flooding risk management and environmental sanitation
The objective of this component is to reduce f lood related risks in the urban core of Can Tho. This componentconsists of a balance between structural and non-structural measuresto help the city manage urban flood risk. The structuralmeasures are a combination of “low-regret” engineering solutio ns, including surrounding embankment, tidal gates/valvesand improved rainwater storage and drainage system.
A polder appr oach will be taken for flood mitigation, which can beexpressed as a structural system consisted of a: i) closed “ring embankm ent with tidal sluicegates/valves” to protectarea from high water on outside rivers (river and tide floods); and, ii) drainag e system including open canals, sewers, stormrainwater retention, and pumps (if needed). Tidal gates are designed for “embank ment function” during closed time and“water discharge function” during gate opening. The drainage system is desig ned based on rainfall intensity, basinarea according to classification and specifications issued by the Government (for example, 1 in 10 year rainfall for open channeldesign).
Component 2: Urban corridor development
The obje ctive of the transport investmentsis to increase intra-city connectivity and encourage compact, mixed-use, pedestrian and public tr ansport oriented urbandevelopment in the less flood prone area of Cai Rang. Connectivity in Can Tho’s urban transport system would be significantlyimproved, increasing transport-related efficiencies, and reducing transport costs. The urban transport systemof Can Tho is formedand oriented along vertical and horizontal axes. There 9 are only a few horizontal axes connecting to the vert ical axes. Thesehorizontal axes are far apart from each other thereby limiting interconnectivity. Thus, transport flows through theurban center,creating increased traffic density in the urban core, increasing transport costs and subsequently product costs, redu cinginvestment attractiveness and competitiveness. Unlinked transport infrastructure also decreases regional and interregional transport connectivity, lowering the speed of goods circulation and subsequently affecting the economic development capability as wellas access of residents to social infrastructure.
Under this project, transport investments will be used to guide more resii aient urbanization,13 to low risk areas on higher ground. Increased accessibility and connectivity as a result of the new andimprov d transport infrastructure is likely to increase land values and investment opportunities along transport corridors, whichis value- creation that the Government can capture using a variety of mechanisms and convert into public revenue. In doing so, thecity has th e opportunity to proactively guide urban growth to areas with lower flood risk, including the higher elevation areasnear the heart of the city.
Component 3: Spatial Planning Platform and Financial and Social ProtectionInstruments
The objective of this intervention is to build management systems to improve spatial planning, dataand information management,post-disaster budget execution, and the responsiveness of safety nets to flood events. Theseactivities are expected to improve dev elopment planning in a climate and risk informed manner, to strengthen financial resilienceand to augment social protection.
In Can Tho, detailed area plans that provide guidance on infrastructure developmentare paper-based. This slows the planning pro cess, makes enforcement of construction permitting less transparent and effective, andhinders the efficient sharing of information across departments. Therefore, a web/based geospatial database will be built, whichwill serve as a single platform for spatial dataand is intended to be used across line departments for spatial planning andinfrastructure development. The Platform will be housedin the People’s Committee (PC), above the line departments, toensure a higher level of ownership and commitment from the PC.Housing the Platform in the PC, instead of one of the linedepartments such as the Department of Construction, will limit rivalriesand competition, which is often the key barrier in datasharing and usage. This Platform will have infrastructure assets that inclu de sectors such as transport, water, sanitation andenergy, as well as buildings.
