Ho Chi Minh City City Context Report

Ho Chi Minh City City Context Report


The Ho Chi Minh City City Context Report is part of a series of reports provided for each city of the Global Future Cities Programme, serving as a tool to frame the proposed Programme interventions within the characteristics and conditions of each city. The City Context Report provides a general analysis of the spatial, financial, and legal conditions in the city, followed by potential impact of the interventions, and a set of evidence-based recommendations for successful implementation and maximised benefits. In Ho Chi Minh City, the projects identified are the development of a Smart Ticketing System for Public Transportation Network, and the development of a Geographical Information System for the Drainage System.
