Overview :

UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 National Consultant to work on Citylab in Da Nang.

Danang is a class-1 municipality and the fifth largest city in Viet Nam in terms of population (with over 1.1 million people). Located on the coast of Viet Nam and the mouth of the Han River, it is one of Viet Nam's most important port cities. Danang is one of the five direct-controlled municipalities and is under the direct administration of the central government. 

Da Nang has a higher urbanization ratio than any of Viet Nam's other provinces or centrally governed cities. It is also one of the most beautiful coastal cities of Viet Nam and have abundant potential for tourism.

In terms of creativity and progressiveness, Da Nang is making strides towards turning itself into an eco-smart urban area, a hub for startups and innovation, and one of the most liveable cities in Asia by 2045 under its smart city development project . 
Yet, there are still issues that the Danang government and people are trying to solve such as environmental challenges  (i.e. typhoon and flood control), lack of clean water in some areas  and waste management . 

The openness of the city administration for learning and experimenting makes it a great opportunity for UNDP Viet Nam’s Accelerator Lab initiative. The UNDP Accelerator Labs were created to re-imagine development for the 21st century – and do so at an unprecedented scale by tapping into the relationships, resources, and the expertise of UNDP and its partners. In 2019, UNDP Viet Nam and the Da Nang’s People Committee signed an MOU for a joint learning experience, of which a core part is considered to formulate a City Lab in Da Nang. One example of CityLab can be found here.

With this common goal, there is a need for a national consultant to help both the Da Nang government and UNDP to formulate the CityLab in Da Nang.
