Abstract:Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam has suffered from in-land flooding in the last 50 years and with the occurrence of climate change, the situation will be getting worse in the future. In-land flooding hindrances Ho Chi Minh City’s economic and social development as well as brings about serious damages to the natural environment. This challenges Ho Chi Minh while becoming an area of sustainable development. In this research, urban floods in Ho Chi Minh city will be mainly focused on and to be more specific, local flood risks, causes and consequences of urban floods will be figured out clearly. Based on that, solutions, especially nature-based ones, will be proposed then analyzed to fit into Ho Chi Minh city’s characteristics then can be used to help solving urban-floods. These interventions will be analyzed from different stakeholders’ perspectives and a wide range of disciplines. Furthermore, whether Ho Chi Minh city’s capacity regarding economic, social and legal conditions to implement these interventions will be made clear in this research. Also, this research will analyze the role of community engagement in effective implementation of the nature-based solutions. Recommendations will be made based on two theories: theory on urban resilience to floods and theory on community engagement. Both primary data (from interview) and secondary data (from media, literature and documents) will be used to reach the goals of this research.
