VND 8.7 billion approved for storm-proof housing in Da Nang

Nhan Dan Online – The Da Nang city People’s Committee approved a VND 8.7 billion (US$417,000) storm-proof housing project funded by the Rockefeller Foundation yesterday.

The Da Nang city Women’s Union was assigned the task of disbursing the capital for the project, which will be implemented over three years from 2011-2014.

Under the project, poor households in eights wards and communes of Son Tra, Lien Chieu, Ngu Hanh Son, and Hoa Vang districts that are regularly damaged by natural disasters will be offered zero interest loans to build storm-proof houses.

The project will also support the city Women’s Union in capacity building activities related to climate change for its staff and in assisting localities to develop adaptation measures and increase community awareness of responding to natural disasters.
